Welded Steel

When creating my welded steel sculpture, I work in the constructivist manner.  Using negative space establishes lightness in a medium that inherently appears dense and heavy.  Using found objects also creates a lightness of feeling, as I create thought and feeling into a visual experience.  For instance, doorways and passageways symbolize the choices each of us has as we go through life, thus creating and being responsible for our own experiences.
