Shattered Illusion
2012
48"x 40"x 4"
Wood, mirror, steel wool, wood stain, acrylic paint 

For this project I really wanted to focus on the wood and the knots especially.  Everything I added into the piece follows the lines of the wood grain leading to the knots.

Electricity
2012
dimensions variable
Wire, leather, vinyl

For this piece I wanted to work with a malleable material to create a 3D version of a sketch on irregular pyramids and triangular shapes. I added leather and vinyl, wrapping it around with wire accentuate the shapes and lines. 

My Last Critique

This piece is a combination of my two current focuses whcih are painting and sculpture. I like the idea of making a three-dimensional painting. I created my own plywood consisting of layers of Padauk, Purple Heart, and Bolivian Rosewood. I sanded away at my plywood with a grinder and a disc sander to create a surrealistic cave. I cut a hole in my masonite canvas and glued the plywood to the back side of the canvas in order to have the cave showing through. Now I am painting on the canvas to compliment the three dimensional cave. I am going to add caves to give the canavas a "swiss cheese look." I very much enjoyed this project and look forward to pushing this idea.

Wood and latex paint
Sizes vary
 
 
Still going along with the personal space, I decided to make it extremely personal. Each piece is made of wood strips that vary in width, length and angle. As they eventually form this basket like shape, the whole shape is a headpiece. To create more of a connection between each strip of wood I wrapped the entire piece in saran wrap and then poured a latex house paint mixed with Elmers glue inside. I was constantly spinning and turning it to spread the paint evenly, When the paint was dry enough I peeled the wrap off gently trying to keep as much paint on as possible. I still wanted a decent amount of the wood showing because that is the most beautiful part.

* As of this moment I just have a picture of the structure - Wasn't able to upload the video file because something is malfunctioning with the file and I have to figure that out.

Through this piece, I have attempted to represent my faith through nature. Sometime I find myself questioning how things have become what they are. As a biologist, I can't deny the existence of evolutionism. But what great power directs them? What gave pwer for us human to become a wise human and left the mushrooms behind the woods. Both species evolutionized from a single bacteria cell. What made that distinction and what directed us to be where we are now? Well, I believe that it was God directing through nature. Through nature's time, we became to be human.

Vibes in the Void 
Wood and Wire
2012
 
Vibes in the Void reflect my family's background in music. My intention for this sculpture is to affect the
perception of my viewers and bring them to the inside of an instrument. This piece invades the space with its strings but the true experience is underneath the void.

Shelter
Burlap, plaster, wire, spray paint, graphite
4' 6" x 2' x 1' 7"

Shelter is an abstraction of a dwelling that is uncomfortably familiar. Its opening is meaning to be inviting, but its insides are too freaky to allow any more physical interaction with the viewer. It is somewhat like being hesitantly fascinated by a carcass or a once-loved home that is in ruins.

Continuity represents the notion of a continuous life through re-purposing an object as well as creating a continuous sound. This piece is constructed from old water heater pipes and transformed into a sculpture of sound.
