Retool: Tapping David

Cast Bronze & Aluminum: 7.5 in. x 4.5in. x 3.5in.

A classic taken and “tooled” as a contemporary reference to the wisdom of King Solomon: “What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.”  Ecclesiastes 1:9

Meeting of the Minds

This mixed-media sculptural installation combines kinetics and large scale forms to create an interactive metaphor for the communication of ideas.  The transmission of thoughts and opinions becomes an art form and this plays out kinetically with a six foot diameter track on which two antique “Gang Cars” travel around at the push of a button, activated by the viewer, colliding at random points around the circle.

Iron Schism

One of three in a series of castings in different media.  This version addresses the mechanics of both the personal and social lives, suggested in the steampunk bits and pieces that are inset into the waist of the figure, and where the figure’s gaze is set.  The figure is captured in stride and references the movement inherent to life, while also giving pause to a moment of self-contemplation and awareness.

The Couple

“The Couple” relates to the viewer in larger than life scale at a height of 8 feet and a width of 7 feet.  The male and female figures have their backs to each other creating a moment of tension.  The art of relationships, it is a fine art indeed Read more…

Bronze Schism

One of three in a series of castings in different media.  This version addresses the passage of time as suggested in the growth rings of the cedar that is inset into the waist of the figure, and where the figure’s gaze is set.  The figure is captured in stride and references the movement inherent to life, while also giving pause to a moment of self-contemplation and awareness.

Silver Schism

One of three in a series of castings in different media.  This version addresses the downfall of self-evaluation performed in isolation.  A mirror is inset into the waist of the figure, where the figure’s gaze is set, seeing only his own reflection.  The figure is captured in stride and references the movement inherent to life, while also giving pause to a moment of self-contemplation and awareness.

Madonna

The sculpture “Madonna” takes its name as a classical reference to the virgin Mary and the contemporary context of an idealized virtuous and beautiful woman.  The glass for this sculpture was hand cut and shaped with very high heat in a kiln over a form that was made by taking a mold of my wife the day before she gave birth to our daughter.  This work, like that of “Three Graces”, came from the life-cast mold of my wife’s physique.  The stainless steel support for the glass is a plasma-cut silhouette of my daughter taken from an ultrasound during the pregnancy.  This work was deeply personal and every bit as satisfying.

Three Graces

Life happens and God is good.  I took a “life mold” of my wife the day before she gave birth to our daughter.  She was very pregnant and a great sport.  I laid cold plaster and gauze across her torso to capture her radiant beauty.
