Catalogue Note

“I can't think of a time when I wasn't interested in creating art. I was a quiet kid and my mother put me in art lessons at a young age. I've been trying to find the hidden worlds in nature ever since. I relive the personal in my art every day as I chip away stone to find the soft curves inside. The curves are what fascinate me most. They're everywhere, universal, feminine. I want people to crawl through them to the other side – to touch them, follow them, and find what's beyond the curve – whatever they imagine that to be.


This works speaks to the idea of just plugging in and playing with a nod to pareidolia. This 2.5 ton rare white slab of California marble has golden intrusions mimicking the power that would flow to an outlet. Difficult to find, quarry, and shape, the marble was forged into a legible face that is a wink at general entitlement: showing up and having everything done for you. Finally, the outlet itself is grounded in a strong natural base - where the sculptor finds himself.
