Scaffolds

    Utilitarian and ceremonial scaffolding used by Native Americans are the spiritual and structural form for much of my sculpture. During ceremonies Native Americans build scaffolds to hang the symbols of their beliefs, and in death, display the metaphors of events from their lives. Avant-garde art should be about avant-garde thought. Consequently, the symbols I hang on my sculptures are about an inflating universe, string dimensions, dimensional membranes, chaos, telos, uncertainty and complexity.

    Below you will see a sampling of my scaffolds. The most recent are at the California Scaffolds link.
