Proteus is an exhibition that consists of seven sculptures, three woodcut prints, and an installation comprised of steel and ceramics. The seven sculptures vary in size and are fabricated from steel, wood, plastic, and foam. The woodcut prints are hand carved and large in scale from a printmaking standpoint. The purpose of Proteus is to explore ideas of balance as it pertains to: life, death, love, resentment, adventure, responsibility, the subconscious, and the physical world. The methods employed while producing this body of work range from traditional to experimental, and the results of the endeavor are mainly obtained through process. The work itself is a byproduct of my peregrination to find balance and harmony through the manipulation of the visual weight of objects, colors, textures, space, and scale.
