He/Him. I create organically, often through initially collecting found objects or up-cycling discarded materials. I then reincorporate these materials into either sculptural displays, welded projects, or sometimes capture them through photographic documentation. I allow the materials themselves to inform my working process, with a particular interest in allowing things to be “as they are”. Through an environmental lens, my work often explores the dynamic, interconnected relationship that exists between the natural and industrial world.
