I have a deep interest in age and decay, and the role of decomposition in bones is obvious. The journey that these objects take through time is incredibly interesting to me, and I enjoy adding to their stories with new contexts. My work often contains natural motifs, and I am interested in the relationship between organic forms and the static nature of metal. My metal casting techniques represent a reclamation of industrial processes for the purpose of art; representing natural forms through this process deepens that relationship.
