This creates new spacial movements. These works use hardware and sculpting techniques to create industrial looking works that appear to be machine-made. Mixed Media: 22” x 74” x 8” SPOKED Sculpting epoxy, dowels, copper angles, hardware, wood, canvas, acrylic and spray paint 22" x 22" x 8" SURFACE PULSE Surface Pulse is all about texture. This group of twelve pieces are experimental, an exploration of surface and materials. It is almost a free-for-all of ideas. All the pieces are white on white with variations only in shade and finish. The white enhances and emphasizes the many surface and patterns details.
