BIO LUMINESCENT STINGRAYS

A careful harmony of material and shape transcends natural form in this steel pair. Gracefully poised in motion these majestic creatures soar overhead in a dance of bioluminescence. The natural curves contrasted with the rigid metal in meant to provoke thought on our relationship as living creatures in a super technological world.

The light within pulses outward towards infinity. Photons cut across the landscape illuminating cerebral pathways of a brighter future. The planet is changing and mother nature has begun to defend herself. Piercing through the land these shapes grow as a response to the increasing industrialization of green space. We get a glimpse of a dystopian near future where nature fights back. An unknown organism from deep within the planets core has emerged. Impervious to the fierce winter winds this array of deep Earth barbs stand firm in the brutal climate. Resilient to the harshest conditions these thorns illuminate the dark winter landscape guiding you towards the light.  We realize we can embody the strength these thorns show us. Fierce and radiant they shine through the night. In darkness we must shine.

I find inspiration in the relationship between nature, technology and how it manages to work itself into our lives. My passion is in working with my hands and creating. I focus on using industrial materials to create a natural ascetic. When I get a chance to experience nature I’m so blown away how the natural world is finds a way. Every random element has a purpose.

 

Light has become a common theme in most of my work in the past few years. Light gives the art another dimension and opens up many different ways to show my work. 

 

Since then my art has grown. It has become more refined and my process has matured. Because of this I've brought many different people into my life through art. This has had a incredible impact on my life. The experiences created for other through my art keeps driving me to take it to the next level.
