It is the knowledge, investigation, exploration, and continual experience of making that motivates me. It is the desire to explore, push, pull, wrap and stretch ordinary materials in unexpected ways to create animated personalities and environments.

The object feels…conjoining human feeling and physical properties of objects. These new, feeling objects, presented as art, can no longer be understood as detached and impersonal—rather, they have been imbued with sensuality and sexuality. It becomes fraught with perturbations and passions, becomes swollen and agitated, rises and falls. Similarly, the human being is transformed into a feeling object. This absurd condition—objects palpitating like humans, while humans are reduced to objects…the object is given life… Germano Celent “Claes Oldenburg and the Feeling of Things” from Claes Oldenburg: An Anthology 1995 Guggenheim Museum Publications New York, NY.
