A man, stands alone... is an exhibition of sculptures examining the conditions of mortality, utilizing the tree as a metaphor for the periods of hardship humans withstand. The minimalistic wooden forms allude to the human figure, embracing surface cracks and other natural defects. The incorporation of metal and concrete place the abstract forms into a moment of conflict or healing. As a sculptor, I use these materials to create visual situations which invite the viewer to contemplate the challenges encountered in life.
