“Abstract Concrete” Series
This series is based on the beauty and design of the myriad cracks and imperfections in concrete streets, sidewalks and parking lots. In addition to the visual interest provided by the cracks, I am also interested in the concept of reality versus representation and realism versus abstraction. In some cases, I have artistically portrayed the cracked concrete in other media, such as paint, resin and metal. In other pieces, I have used the actual broken concrete itself as the sculpture, making an abstraction which is nevertheless literally concrete.
