Body Parts

Updated: Mar 13, 2019

10 January 2019. I’m not sure which is more unsettling to people, small cast doll heads or body parts. Just as some people are uncomfortable with bones, perhaps representing death, I think bones have a beautiful architecture to them. Pure form following function. Do body parts represent dismemberment? Perhaps but not always. Strictly speaking, a portrait painting is a body part separated from the rest of its body and yet most people do not find portraits to be unsettling.


For me, focusing on a body part increases its beauty. I have always maintained that my work is a kind of Rorschach test. What you get out of viewing my work largely depends on what you bring to it. In my attempt to juxtapose nature with the mechanical, I focus on how each informs the other and see the beauty in the most unlikely of places.
