Artist's Statement

Everything we do leaves an impression. Our actions, whether intended or not, create an effect on our environment and on our relationships. My art-form is an expression of that effect, it intends to “expose” both literally and figuratively the effects of our actions, by creating a patina, with rust and decay onto the medium, literally creating the art on the exposed material.

I set up a composition, so that over a period of weeks, to months, to a year, the ENVIRONMENT, including rain, snow, ice, sun, animals and accumulated debris, create an EXPOSURE on the medium, which may include steel, copper, aluminum, wood, bronze or other flat materials. I am not aware of any other artist doing anything like this, I believe it to be completely unique.
