CONTEMPORARY ARTIST

 

A site dedicated to the exploration of material and form as influenced by natural phenomena, popular culture, corporate capitalism, and humanity's relationship to our environment.  My work strives to encourage the viewer to re-evaluate what they interact with on a daily basis.

Petro Max'd, 2009

Commissioned by the Dunlop Art Gallery (Regina, SK) for the Sherwood Village Library branch. Since plastic is a subsidiary of petroleum, I made the sculpture's base seem like it was melting into a puddle of plastic and oil. The label references the increasing shortage of fossil fuels and our reliance on them, but also gives the viewer a renewed sense of where our everyday materials originate.
