About Red Amnis I

The Red Amnis I is the first of what will be a family of gently undulating wall mounted sculptures. The first of my wave-filled wall sculptures had a greater number of more defined and abrupt 'waves'. The Amnis pieces will undulated gently, more like the curves in my Bastion, free-standing sculptures. These pieces are in fact inspired by my Bastion sculptures, which are interpretations of mountain ranges. For the Aminis works I am letting the underlying forces the shapes and form mountains be the source of my inspiration - the movement of land masses and water.

In the end, I want these pieces to exist almost as geological and natural snapshots or fetishes. I want the viewer to be looking and a newly formed fossil of sorts, a contemporary record of a process or event that never happened, but may have, or might.
