Thank you for inviting me to comment on your new work- I was happy to see it added to the site. I see Black Forest as a formally dark piece; aside from the obvious blackish coloration of the painted shapes, the angular pieces read as shards of a larger, fractured whole. While the abstracted trees aren’t truncated in the organic sense, there is a sensation of mechanical reduction of form in the tall supports. I enjoy the density of the top of the sculpture, and rapid changes in the directionality within the work. It gives it a feeling of entrapment, while the bottom section has a release of some open space. The bottom of the sculpture is a little difficult to make out in terms of surface texture and coloration. I like the balance of visual weight that the circular base occupies, as it nicely suspends the top of the ‘trees’, but the lighter stone for me is conceptually more ambiguous. The warm color of the stone gives a fleeting awareness of the black forms piercing a more vulnerable field. To me the irregular brown patterning on the stone also suggests moving shadow configurations of the black forest trees.
