“…the artist’s role is to create, among people, and to somehow be the bridge, or the instigator for developing a sense of reverence and beauty. “ Satish Kumar
Making art is in large part motivated by my desire to learn, to pose questions, and to practice awareness. My work is a series of close observations and examinations of objects encountered in daily life. I use material from nature and objects that have been discarded or devalued. I endeavor not to create something new, but to discern what is. I am inspired by the poetic nature of these objects. Through working with them I begin to know them. I examine their forms, surfaces, their relationships to one another and their individual imperfections. A dialogue is built around the shape, color, texture, or function of the objects used. Making connections and finding relationships in the things that are already in the world is a way for me to better understand the world and my place in it. I am interested in art as a vehicle for dialogue within the context of everyday life.
