My work is about discovering images through the manipulation of matter-a kind of personal alchemy. Sometimes, these images show up in the faces I see in chips of bark or other natural objects that I make into my figures. Other times, they emerge almost whole cloth from inward, startling me in the process. All artists aspire to create works that are “rare events, healing enlightenments,” as Francesco Clemente writes. They almost never are. But the act of making can be.
