Individual events may create ripples that extend outward, each crisscrossing as one path overlays another. I have become fascinated with how these energies can become amplified when occurring in unison. Tangents & Covergence explores these possibilities by suspending the moment in time as these energies come together. From one path to the next, the form arises through the malleability of metal as worked by hand to capture the energy as they evolve and unify. These coexist and expand as a synergy of the artists' vision, the material's resilience, the handling of the tools and techniques as they come together.
