The aesthetic undertakings within this series of artwork is based on the idea of destruction and represent as much a crime against art itself as a crime against the human population represented. The act of destruction carried out on each of these pieces contradicts the principal upon which the creative spirit is based and flourishes. This series of work follows a divergence from beauty towards the dissonance of corroded figures, denying the glory of war and displaying the decay in our world.
This body of works represent a turning point for the artist into an area of activist art. The offence of destruction has become an aesthetic endeavour within this series of works. Regarded as a defiant and desperate act, it is a form of derivative art that it this case can be considered as the pillage of an art form.
Notwithstanding, the affirmative creative and aesthetic characteristics present within this series of sculpture provide a beautiful illustration of the redeeming quality for which humanity is known: the creative ability to rebuild civilizations upon the remnants of the past.
I believe that within the human form, our collective history is alive. Through my sculpture, I celebrate life and strive to capture the beauty and tragedy within humanity. I believe that the human figure carries significant meaning in and of itself as it provides resemblance, recognition, and association. It is within people that I find my inspiration.
My desire is to translate my figurative and now my dis-figurative art into artistic statements, both humanistic and representational, of our current human condition.
