The artist’s statement on his website says, “My upbringing as an artist was conservative. I grew up looking at masters of the figure: artists like Michelangelo, Bernini, and DaVinci. They inspired me to study the human form. I continue to enjoy the challenge of translating a likeness on a small scale while communicating a specific idea.The figure allows me to convey the human condition through situations and characters with which viewers can readily identify.The ideas for individual sculptures are autobiographical at the start, taking from my experiences, my family life, my intellectual battles, my emotions. In their specificity, they take on a universal appeal. In each sculpture, I include objects that hold multiple meanings as well as nostalgic allure. It is also important that my work conveys a playfulness referring to the innocence of childhood curiosity.”
