Sculpting air…wire holograms…

“My sculpture is mainly composed of air. I use bits of wire only to define that part of air to which I want to draw my audience’s attention. Minimal visual cues to assist the mind to define space, enclose volume, provoke mood or silently hear music or sound.

Sometimes no more than a simple gesture, my work can consist of a strand or two, or be a highly detailed study consisting of hundreds of pieces of wire.”
