Why I Make Public Art
Public sculpture is one of the most relatable forms of fine art. The public can directly interact with a sculpture; they walk around it or underneath it, they touch it, and they see it bare the same elements they do. I create artwork to translate my imagination into our three-dimensional world. I also create work that is relatable on a contextual level. The objective of my artwork is to engulf the public in nostalgia, association, entertainment, and thought. I create surreal figures out of various materials, generally cast and welded metal, arranged in a calculated, aesthetically pleasing manner in order to illustrate a single moment within a story. My work is vibrant in color and intricate in design. I believe that making public artwork is a powerful privilege and works of art should be treated with high regard. My objective is to unite communities with an appreciation for art as a material and as a form of communication.
