Object Label:
I make amorphous blobs that convey a unique form of grotesque abstraction. The inspiration comes from my time working at a butcher shop, and utilizing the forms from scraps and offal of various consumed animals most notably cattle. I then cast the forms in metal using the skills that I learned at the University at Albany in a foundry techniques class. The addition of bright colors contrasts with the grotesque nature of the form and gives it a more intriguing and approachable nature. The final piece stands out as a form of mysterious origin like an otherworldly being or geological find.
