I'm interested in the visual relationships established between exterior and interior forms.

The unfolded group of sculptures evolved from observations of fall bark peeling off trees and dropping to the ground in curled shapes. The curled bark acts as a protector to the various twigs and other small objects nestled inside.

My next step was to abstract this concept and invent forms to represent this idea.

In my earlier sculptures, in this series, the outer shell was rolled tighter showing fewer of the interior shapes.

As the work progressed the curled outer shell dropped away or opened up showing more of the forms contained within.
