  I confront sculpture from the point of view of a painter: there is so much planning one can do, but during the creative process I relay on my ability to solve formal problems as I would when working on a painting, but with sculpture I'd adapt my skills on the process. I compose with the loose components in the floor, and move them around until dialectic emerges between the different parts. I then carve, relaying on geometry and organic forms, paint the timber's surface, and carve drawings on its surface.
This piece is a departure from the figure in my sculpture. This piece is about organic matter and suggestion.
