Installation, October 2013
This work is an abstract expression of the building and its occupants. The hard angles and starkness of the aluminum panel represent the architecture, the windows and doorways that are traversed by the people. The organic side built of bronze panels and curved stainless rods reflect the people and their movements in and throughout the structure. Often buildings and their occupants influence one another in a variety of ways. Such is with this sculpture. Depending on the angle of view, which is varied through the multiple of window walls, the view of the organic side or the architectural side intermingle and change in perceived balance.

“SP1-13″ (Self Portrait-1 2013)
This sculpture is a “self-portrait” of the “process” of my work. My personal image is pointless.
The imagery of the processes in work, the materials implemented, the tools and the origins of all the above are the true interest when studying the artists.
Here you see the bench vise, hammer and assorted clamps. These tools are holding in place the myriad of materials I’ve used for years. I’ve built work with scrap metal plate and found items such as Erector Set parts, clothes hangers and yes, colored vinyl records.
I typically use round rod of all basic metals, bronze, steel, brass and aluminum.
So, this image is a more accurate representation of me as an artist than, well………………..
my ever-aging face.

Wichita Art Museum, “Pechakucha”
Nov, 15, 2013,
“The global rage of pechakucha hits Wichita! Part open mic, part thought cocktail, part happy hour on a Friday night, join the crowd as caffeinated ideas and antics unfold.
20 slides for 20 seconds each—say what you mean, get to the point, and then sit down. WAM presents a lineup of local artists, musicians, and architects—creative types of every stripe—in streamlined offerings about what’s up and on their minds. Start with a cocktail reception, and then strap in as punchy, art-savvy ideas unfold.”

“Adornment” or…”This Old Thing?” or “…My Pretty!” (working titles)
Exhibit date and venue details, TBA
In studio collaboration between myself and artist Janet Riddel
(of the Wichita Art Museum ”Art Start” Education Program).
We are building sculpture as jewelry.
Planned designs as well as “freestyle” builds are in process.
Live models (male as well as female) will saunter about to display the works
during the exhibit.
Sample photos below.
“Sunbeam-the Blue Period” (working title).
I have acquired a 1965 Sunbeam Alpine sports car.
It has been stripped to the bare uni-body.
I will cut it up and then reconstruct into a sculpture/ installation.
“Trabant- Back in the US, I mean DDR” (working title).
I have acquired a 1977 Trabant wagon.
The previous owner states,
“It was East Germany’s answer to the people’s car.
They were made in the DDR in Zwickau.
They were never even exported to the
Soviet Union (as far as I know). East Germany, Yugoslavia,
Czechoslovakia and Hungary received these. As far as I know that was it.”
This particular wagon met its (early) demise here in Kansas and
the owner graciously granted permission for me to cut it up for art’s sake.
