For me, art making is a deeply personal activity, and often the process of making the objects takes over before any meaning is revealed. Things come together. I select images and elements for my sculptures and collages that are for me, symbolic and multifaceted. Putting elements together, I strive for the same sort of compactness and clarity that poetry often delivers. The meaning becomes an allegory or metaphor, or even a pun, which satisfies my compulsion of simply making stuff. I’m not a fan of explaining things, and ultimately I’m just as content with presenting an art object that is a riddle or paradox that I leave to the viewer to unravel.
