From early childhood I’ve obsessively drawn people, and characters from my imagination. This creative compulsion later came to reflect my desire to understand myself and others, both from a psychological as well as a creative and emotional perspective. My work explores human expression, form and relationships between individuals and within the crowd. Having studied drawing and sculpture, I found wire the ideal medium to take the drawn line off the page into 3-dimensional space. Using wire, the definition of form comes as much from the voids and shadows as from the material itself. Human expression and form is complex, fleeting and fragile. The web-like weave of wire, shadow and space attempts to communicate this nature. The resulting wire characters combine the ghostly and ethereal with the comic and cartoon. read full statement
