After decades working in 2D, I learned welding at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Working in the round was an exhilarating challenge. A distinct sense that I could feel the molecules in the steel shift as I heated and bent it came as a surprise and fireworks went off in my mind. Here was empowerment.
Starting small, I set objectives: a container with curved sides, a visual metaphor for a renowned artist’s work, a mixed media piece, one with a door that revealed hidden shapes. Then the sculptures grew bigger. For twenty-three years, my work has been exhibited from Maine to Florida, Washington, D.C. to Chicago, in outdoor sculpture venues and museums. Some are overt and others conceptual. Many of these sculptures and installations make this industrial material look organic or use visual metaphors, combine unlike materials, or sometimes play with kinetic movement. In each, I’ve tried to push the boundaries of what is possible.
