Artist Statement: These sculptures put complex objects into simple boxes. Once observed and considered in their constricted state, the complexity of the original objects are revealed by chipping away at the surrounding geometric forms. The work posits that dissecting the individual parts of an object does not necessarily define the larger whole. Contemplating a slice of tomato does not give justice to the entire hamburger. As a football coach, having a deep knowledge of passing plays is not sufficient for a well rounded offense. A pleasant garden is more than flowers, sometimes you need good dirt too. The current work uses canned beverages to explore these ideas further.
