If you had a dinner party,

 who would you invite?

We’ve all been asked that. We try to think of remarkable people who would elevate us if we had an evening with them. That is how I approach the creation of these portrait busts, not only from the perspective of fascinating people who I would like to have dinner with, but also in terms of people who I don't know who may be equally fascinating.

 

 

Based on this premise, I sculpt them one-by-one in cement. The great thing about cement is that as a medium, it's messy and hard to predict, just like human beings. So even though I may think I know who I'm inviting or want to invite, I really have no idea what they're like until we're actually face-to-face.

 

And the best part? You're invited.

For decades, I have explored storytelling of the human experience through art - capturing the emotion and idiosyncrasies of an individual. 

Cement doesn't allow you time to obsess over your work, so you have to get in there and get it done. The most important thing about my sculpture is not that they're weird and funny looking, it's the recognition that we all want to be recognized and seen.
