Animals & Insects

Shapes and objects in my environment often remind me of animals and insects. This has led to an evolving line of sculptures that, as realistic art pieces, connect our minds to the true surrealism in our world. Are they real now - or in the future?

ANIMAL HEADS

These began as experiments in the evolution of two shoes into sculpture. They followed the use of single shoes (as in the "Black Flies & Other" category).

The functional mail parts rise to the occasion as the head is pulled up.
