Artist Statement: In this body of work, I am interested in the intersecting of elements. I find it interesting as one moves around the object the individual elements move together and separate but always supporting the entire form. Balanced Oblique is directly influenced by elements of past work relating to the cathedral, architecture and the use of formulas relating to the human form. Here I am more interested in how the rigid linear forms join and work with the circular elements. The proportions are important to created balance and harmony. The light is dispersed through the work creating situations where the form multiplies with within the object, creating additional visual linear components and textures that are physical as well as illusions form the refracting of light.
