I'm endlessly fascinated by certain aspects of our world, including symmetry, chaos, and infinity. Mathematics allows me to explore these topics in distinctive artworks that I feel are an intriguing blend of complexity and beauty.

The laws that govern our physical universe can be succinctly expressed by mathematical equations. As a result, mathematics can be seen throughout the natural world, and much of my work plays on mathematical forms in nature.

This abstract sculpture, which mixes biological and geometric forms, is based on a regular hexahedron (more commonly known as a cube). It retains most, but not all, of the symmetries of the cube.
