Wire Mesh Sculptures of the Human Form

“As a student of psychology and enthusiast of human nature, I have always been intrigued by underlying allusions and the universal body language. The genuine truth expressed through the subtlety of the unspoken gesture is my inspiration for sculpture of the human form.

Through these images emerging from a cloth of wire or stone of clay, I strive to capture and share these intimate yet universal expressions. The unimposing transparency of the material is intended to offer a moment or a memory, which each observer can make his/her own.”

Half round sculptures from wire mesh created free hand (no molds or casts).
