Environmental Art Installation, I-Park Foundation, Connecticut, 2016

The site is a dry river bed during a drought. This work is like an offering to the gods of rain. I am playing with ideas of value and worth, using humble moss and concrete alongside precious gold.  At the end of the day the missing element is the most precious one of all – the water that should be running freely down the creek.

I work both in the urban landscape and the natural world. Some of my works are large, monumental and industrial; some are softer; some smaller. I try to harness elements beyond my control; glass becomes a channel for light, capturing changes in the atmosphere around it; plant materials make the passage of time and season as important a part of the sculpture as my own object making.
