There is an internal pressure within the body that always pushes outward in a convex fashion. This internal pressure shows the unique spirit and soul of each individual and no two people are exactly alike. Using anatomy to translate this life force energy into sculptural terms I learned to recreate this pressure within my bronzes giving them an energy and presence of a unique human being. Because my work is about showing man at his full potential I began recruiting several models to create each piece allowing me to pick and choose the body parts to sculpt a unique morphology that best narrates the story and character that I am presenting. In this process of creation I use my understanding of anatomy, and structure of the human body to organize the figure. The spiraling of muscles over the architectural foundation of the skeleton has become my grammar in presenting the unique energy of each character. As I evolved as a human being my art evolved in a parallel fashion presenting a visual record of my internal growth. The sculptures are an energetic evolution of my own experience and history. In the last 15 years the energy of my sculptures have metamorphasized from figures that are closed and pressed down by gravity to figures that carry an expansive energy with an open heart. The poses have become more elegant and graceful taking on god-like proportions. The transitions between limbs flow with greater harmony. And the hierarchy of parts fit together with an ease suggesting a greater sense of wholeness. My vision as an artist has evolved from one of oppression and struggle to a realization that the universe is full of grace available to all those willing to open their eyes in the creation of the life of their own choosing
