artomatic 2009

Come to the 9th floor to see my new creations in Glass, Concrete and Steel.
In creating my pieces i use common and slightly nostalgic items to tell a story of transformation and growth based on my interpretations of religions, spirituality, and myths.The ethereal quality of glass set within the earthly and corporeal concrete is the metaphor our our yearning and questing souls confined in these earthly bodies.

Plus, they're like wicked cool and i'm really happy with them!
more of my work can be seen here
