My sculptural work evolves from the constructivist and geometric abstract traditions. While it is inspired by my faith in humanity and the beauty of nature, it is most directly influenced by Fletcher Benton’s geometric abstractions and David Smith’s “Cubi” series. Stylistically, my work contains a variety of geometric constructions, shapes, and patterning curves and spaces that exhibit movement, harmony, energy, symmetry, and balance. One of my evolving visions is to integrate the geometric abstract aspect of my work with a variety of contemporary and traditional African artistic paradigms.
I view my work as an evolving process that seeks to achieve four objectives: 1) to provide art that is imaginative and original; 2) to provide art that is three dimensional and interesting from all angles; 3) to provide art that will be true to my vision, while stimulating the imagination and intellect of the viewer; and 4) to provide art that reflects meticulous craftsmanship, structural strength, and durable materials. My medium of polished high-grade stainless steel is durable, allows work to remain on permanent display with little upkeep, creates an ever contemporary and interactive appeal, and reflects the rich luster inherent in metals. Lastly, I envision some of my small-scale sculptures as maquettes for much larger pieces for local public spaces.
