Hi World!

THE EVOLUTION OF FORM 

Marriage of art and architecture  

 “My inspiration is often derived from the process of problem solving, but I am never far from architecture,” he explains. “If I am working on an architectural project and I encounter a space that needs to be filled, I start to imagine how different shapes and forms can fill that void.”  


My work as both an artist and architect transpire in parallel. When stuck on an architectural project, I often turn to sketches, drawings and try to manipulate forms as a path to liberating my mind to overcome a sort of architectural equivalent of writer’s block.  


I approach art as a function of what I see, what I intend to build, and the materials that are in my mind. With drawings and sketches in hand, I leverage the power of modern technology, using digital techniques to bring designs to life through parametric diagrams and 3D printing. Infusions of light then create variations of form, resulting in unexpected contours that animate my multifaceted sculptures. 


  “Architecture without light is just a dark space,”  

“But by strategically placing light on the pieces, I am able to control the shadows and volume of the work.”   


That process can be seen in my commission work for Mexico’s San Lazaro Legislative Palace Chamber of Deputies, where manipulations of a flowing Silhouette sculpture evolved into a wall-mounted work entitled Chaos and Order. Using white concrete in variations of the original form, and a contrasting vermillion background, I was able to position pieces into a pattern of ‘organized chaos’. Rectangular light patterns create shadows that accentuate the multiple elements of the work, reflecting my interpretation of the chamber’s day-to-day interactions.  


 With the evolution of technology, I have immersed myself in a new combination of art and science. Applicable to any material, including carbon steel, wood, sandstone and much more, his parametric designs can produce 60, 600, or 6,000 similar pieces, all with slight geometric variations.
