In this exhibition, I aim to take the inherent sense of scale that we see but do not notice in the surrounding scenery, reduce it to sculptural material, and reconstruct it. If what we see is the surface, what I am exploring is the structure and skeleton that underlies it. To a field of vision that encompasses horizontal lines skating and intersecting over the surface, l introduce a deeper perspective that slices through vertically and raises the surface. I am exploring the possibilities of sculpture with a new sense of scale.
