Aquatica is my series of found object assemblage based on oceanic life.
The wretched refuse of our teeming shores and those tempest tossed fragments become the bones of new sculpture.
I am driven to collect objects that have an interesting look, feel & aura about them. Usually the pieces seem to find me as I am walking in the woods, streets and shorelines. Sometimes it takes years for me to see a connection between two random scraps. From there I find other pieces that link to the concept. As the assemblage develops I usually have many pieces and then edit to find the essence.
Using hand tools I may screw, nail, pin, weld or rivet fragments together.
