The sculptures in this suite are based on simple geometric forms, however, the surface treatments of each work render them engaging and approachable. Bird Plane House is composed of two intersecting flat planes that form an illusionistic drawing of a cube. From different perspectives, the work is reminiscent of a bird, an arrow, a drawing of a house, or even a paper plane. Shell is a visually dynamic conical half- sphere. The concave interior reflects a spectrum of light from gold to silver, mimicking the coloration of a peacock feather. Intersection is an elaboration of a perforated cube design that the artist has worked with extensively. The colorful terrazzo dots stand in for perforations, and lend the sculpture a playful pattern and rhythm.
