My work is rooted in ancient religious and monumental imagery and references the work of the early and contemporary minimalists. While I share the formal concerns of the early minimalists, my work has a contmporary interpretation. The florescence of the Plexiglas creates an aura that transcends the physical while the grounded aluminum form retains the integrity of the object. It was a great experience to build this piece at the Park and I would like to thank the staff at Socrates and the New York Community Trust for their support in providing this opportunity.
