I began a series of wave sculptures made of wood as an undergraduate student at Brooklyn College . I enjoyed working with wood because I found that while wood was easy for me to cut and shape, wood also had a structural integrity that allowed me to build with it. I cut and laminated boards together and then used a grinder to shape and refine the wave forms.
As the work developed the waves became more and more abstract. Soon, I believed that a wave was anything that expressed a rising and falling movement. The last sculpture on this page, Standing, was created while I was a graduate student at Pratt Institute.
