My recent work is, at its core, a meditation on the transformation of raw material to sculptural object. I have always been fascinated by the visceral nature of traditional well-crafted materials especially when combined with the seductive allure of time-based media. All the wood I use has been locally sourced, milled by me, and worked primarily with hand tools. Now over 55 and well past my anatomical prime, I dabble in rock climbing and boxing to stay in shape for the sawmill and to reconnect with the base nature of the human body. The videos in this work illuminate the non-narrative, mundane yet often elegant movements in these and other routine activities. One of my goals with the work is to evoke some of the raw beauty of this repetitive physicality.
