  • Among the topics that I hope to address in my sculpture are: 1) the effects of time and our relationship to things, 2) culture and its by-products, and 3) objects that metaphorically manifest iconographic and mythological thoughts. As time passes we gain new perspectives on the world. Old things obtain value simply by their age, but more importantly, this selective process, by virtue of the object's symbolic importance can tell us something about our values and what we consider significant. Therefore, the prestige of an object is related to what it signifies. Please email for information on purchasing or commissioning works: \n This email address is

  • An Archaeological Iconography To an extent, carving is akin to excavating: layer by layer forms are revealed within the mass of the block. There are some consistent and irreducible characteristics about archaeological activity that form my thoughts about a theory of beauty and artistic appeal. First of all, archaeology employs a rational approach to its subject and this approach is sectional (utilizing straight lines and right angles); the zone or area of enquiry is therefore "framed". The reasons for events in archaeology are often capricious while the reasons for artistic compositions are based on intent. Art making, however, is not

  • Much of my marble sculpture begins with the process of assemblage. Other assemblage work is not destined to be translated into stone. This collection of works was first shown in Florence at SACI in 2005.These works are a means of working spontaneously and directly with the raw materials of found objects. I understand them as exercises and this is what I often do when I find myself in moments when I cannot carve stone. Some of these have taken years to complete and others take minutes and many others are on tables or boxes in my workshop waiting for some missing element

  • RIPT was born from the discovery of the aesthetic potential of some accumulated publicity posters on an abandoned building in the center of Florence. My part of this process is to remove parts of layers to reveal colors and patterns sealed within the paper. This process lies somewhere between the idea that Michelangelo believed he could already see the forms of the sculpture within his chosen block of marble and removing the scratch-off coating of a lottery ticket. I found some sort of perfection in my first torn fragment and subsequent pieces have been a search to repeat this phenomenon. Please email for information on
