Using a Laser to Create Works in Wood

Inspired by the fundamental patterns of the universe, the basic shapes that combine to create the infinite spectrum we see before us, I use a focused laser to cut sheets of plywood which are then stacked for effect. Combining computer precision with my obsession of geometric shapes and allows for the construction of designs that would be near impossible for me to make by hand. With the mindset of creating pieces that hover between print and sculpture, between easily recognizable and distinctly unique, between reality and illusion, my goal is to catch the viewer briefly unaware, in a state between conscious and subconscious, and draw them into a meditative state.
