As part of my mandala series, these pieces explore the possible shapes made from various living creatures. An insect wing, marsupial torso, twin goat's heads and a fish tale. The notion is to create an overall design that is appealing and yet somewhat disturbing when the viewer tries to interpret the individual pieces that make up the whole.

This is one of a series of mandalas using the human form. In this version I have introduced shadows as part of the design. I photographed the model with two light sources and created overlapping shadows. I wanted the shadows to have more life by fading the forms from dark to "light" and overlapping the model's arm at one point. Adding color in my mandalas is a balance between depicting the human form in a more natural color or blending the coloration to bring out the design.

This photomontage piece was created from images of a sculpture I made last year. I continue to be fascinated by reflective surfaces and projected images. The original piece moved on three separate axis and I wanted to retain some of the sense of movement with the light reflecting. The title of this piece is a reaction to a critic who commented on my sculpture.

This video explores one’s perception of time relative to events, emotions and memories. It uses the various states of water, wind and nature to tell the story. Time and how we measure our moments is more than the mechanical devices or electronic timers we respond to daily. What happens in one special moment lives on through out our lives while another moment of the same duration is barely noticed. Enjoy my four minute video and tell me if you found it memorable.
