A Way to Contribute to the Public GoodDuring travels through the US, China and Europe I was captivated by the work of master architects and sculptors and felt a growing need to build monumental sculptures that engage the public. So I began to work in greater size and power.
Today I'm involved in large-scale, site-specific installations for public spaces ~ works that tell a story, offer a place for conversation, celebrate people, science, events and their surroundings or simply act as wayfinders.
I am proud to collaborate with a noted public artist who has developed site-specific public artwork throughout the nation. Together, Howard Meehan and William Freer have submitted ground-breaking concepts that celebrate ideas, memorialize fallen military and commemorate historic events such as Memphis's I Am a Man March.
Working with a powerful CAD program, I render full 360-degree visuals to envision the finished installation from all viewpoints.
One recent presentation was for the University of Utah Crocker Unified State Lab, which is a full-service forensic science provider, with lab testing for DNA, biological evidence, and identification of controlled substances. We positioned this facility as seeking seeking scientific truth in all areas, and interpreted it through the discovery of the pearl.
Take a few moments to watch the video.
Additionally, I've presented concepts for individual sculptures that beautify parks, landscapes, airports and other public spaces, including a recent purchase by Western New Mexico University for their Acclaimed Artists series.
