A Thirst for Life • 2015 • 149 Main St
This piece is an abstracted reconstruction of a blooming flower. Its biologically-inspired design reflects the geometric patterns and movements of life that already surrounds us. The initial intent for this piece is to serve as an indication of the natural world’s complexity and superior beauty but evolved to be the embodiment of my personal artistic freedom as well. As I am only beginning my artistic career, there are no expectations for my work – a fact that frees me to experiment with materials and concepts with no consequence. I am confident my reawakened perception on art and life is reflected in this piece.
I studied sculpture at the University of North Texas and have had the opportunity to work closely with sculptors Ed Benavente and Emil Alzamora since my move to Beacon.
