My work addresses conservation, climate change, consumerism, notions of beauty and attachment through abstract sculpture and installation made from already existing materials. I've used thousands of discarded bike tubes, zillions of salvaged Mylar strips from mailing envelopes, hundreds of dead trees, dozens of feet of recycled City water pipe, my own old shoes or love letters, scrounged rusty metal, to create large and small abstract sculpture and installations that ask the viewer to consider what they think of as meaningful or valuable. I keep it fun and a bit whimsical though. I don't think being preachy is a way to inspire change.
