Despite their undeniable materiality, many of my sculptures tiptoe on the earth, reaching skyward to play with light or dance in air. Their open forms enliven space, rather than enclose it. The heavy metal plate — flat, bent or curved, vividly painted, brightly burnished or raw — seems at home in man-made and natural environments alike. For site-specific sculpture, however, location is not arbitrary: its identity arises from its unique geographical setting and socio-cultural context.
