My relationship with geometry reflects a desire for simplicity, rhythm, and harmony. I create geometric sculptures from recycled wood, playing with reflective space, texture, and colour to enhance the viewer’s experience. The sculptures also include sensor-generated responsive sounds as site specific response or designed to calm the mind and reduce tension. In addition to sculpture, I produce contemporary Japanese woodblock prints (Mokuhanga) using two-dimensional geometric forms to interpret alchemical symbols and images in accordance with Carl Jung’s theories.
