Art can be said to be inductive and this leads to a different type of proof from deductive reasoning.
I like to set my sculptures in situations that can be interpreted in different contexts. I believe context affects truth. My bronze cast figurines can be in situations that illustrate contextual conflict.
My sculptures use the situation as a way to propose valid reasoning paths that lead to different conclusions. Art visually shows abstract, incomplete, and frequently ambiguous statements of a situation.
I would like viewers of my work to engage in discourse and discussion on the various contexts that lead to possible meanings they see in my sculpture.
Furthermore, the medium is the message. Bronze is a warm metal that is substantive and durable. Whatever truth is deduced or inferred from my bronze art can last a very long time.
