Fan Cage Mirror
The Magnifier Light
Very steam punk by design. Components include (from bottom up) Metal wheel base, brass colored lamp fixture (repaired), alarm clock works, bakelite lamp base, electro luminescent wire, magnifying glass lens, another brass lamp fixture, magnifying lens from projector, dough strip cutter, brass nuts, magnetic blinking led light, old chair springs, old drawer pulls.
The Parsifal Box
The Parsifal Box represent purity of heart and soul while also showing (as in the story) a fall from that state of grace, as represented by the crackled paint and the white calcite heart that has some inclusions. Components include: Parapet Form, clock gears, light bulb, uphostery tacks, chain and clasps, Calcite Heart, Calcite Sphere, silver metal pineaple leaves.
The First Skateboard
My take on what the first skateboard looked like. Absolutely from the Victorian Era. This also serves as an icon to skateboarding. The components are as follows from back to top then down. Bottom: Antique Roller Skates (6)
Board: Hide stretcher board. Top: Pie Crust Crimper, Plastic doll eye, Wooden toy train track, wooden hands, back of a victorian chair, metal leaves, foundry mold, drapery
I believe that humanities major talent is making symbols. We have been this way since the beginnings of our existence as a race. It is the reason we have a written language, music, painting, sculpture, dance, mathematics, the sciences and our entire civilization. This is the cornerstone of what it is to be a thinking human being. My painting, mixed media and digital works are his explorations into the creative spirit.
