ARTIST STATEMENT
My sculptures are made by cutting shapes from reclaimed pine and assembling them to form larger more intricate structures.
I am interested in repetition, layering and overlapping.  These ideas are rooted in my teenage years when I was in the number one high school marching band in Japan.  The marching band practiced for six hours a day, every day. We walked in formation, making circles, lines and shapes, whilst playing our instruments, in my case, the tuba.  If someone was absent, there would be a gap, an empty space, where they had been.  This space, combined with repetition and the shapes we made, have directly influenced my ideas concerning form, layering, patterning and repetition.
