My two sculptures in the Pacific Rim Sculptors' Group show "Sculpture Now” are both narratives about issues in our current cultural landscape in the United States. “Seventh Sin (Gluttony)” is a statement about the current crisis of obesity in our society.

For over 30 years I have collected found objects, mostly plastic, to create figurative assemblage/constructions. I work with industrial hot glue and screws to secure the objects to each other, making figures, animals, birds, sometimes making larger installations of these sculptures in what I call “tableaux.”

The materials are the lowest caste in the hierarchy of debris, but I continue to find inspiration in them. Capturing gesture, form, and movement to bring life to this seemingly worthless material is the essence of my art.

About a decade ago I started casting some of the assemblages into bronze, so the sculpture could be exhibited outdoors or in public areas.
