"By using certain shapes – specifically, a hyperbolic paraboloids and spiculums - in my new body of work, I explore this transcending concept of the infinite and time as a vessel. A vessel can be something that ferries or something that contains, and time can be something manipulated and finite. A hyperbolic paraboloids and spiculums in themselves are vessels transporting and/or holding along their planer surface. The surface can hold something stagnant (indefinitely or definite) or tender the object along the surface throughout eternity as a proverbial Charon. All of these pieces were raised or hammered from a flat sheet of metal. I have taken the linear and created an infinite. I have taken the infinite and made the finite. Using light and the physical object, I have mixed the physical and non-tangible to create forms that transport and hold. In the blackened pieces I created, I used a Korean process known as Keum-Boo. This process entails fusing thin pure gold sheet to the surface of fine silver. This creates a bond that can be soldered and worked as a single metal. The blackening is an acid that etches into the silver but does not touch the gold. These pieces of gold or “light” are trapped in the void of light in the Acheron that makes up the hyperbolic paraboloid. These pieces are trapped in the starless sky of the infinite, creating the finite in an infinite existence."
