Can you describe your creative process?

I go into it with the idea that each chair will support itself and if they dont I learn from my mistakes, chairs are my support group. Again its a meditative process - each chair requires a new decision. Learning to accept is the end goal.

"Chairs are fascinating because they address both physiology and fashion. they represent an effort to balance multiple concerns: artistry, status, gravity, construction and comfort."

Chair connects culture. there is always a conversation to be shared on the topic of chairs, Chairs are People if you think about it.
the kanji for chair in japanese means strange wood child 椅 =木 wood 奇 strange. 椅子は人で. Chairs are people is the study of still life bringing together a curation of chairs for the process of experimenting.

An empty chair is a space for possibility.

Art Encounters:  Chairs Are People
