Artist’s statement

Balsa birds sit in a delicate balance, whether perched precariously or cantilevered on trunk-based plinths. By extending beyond the plinth my sculpture plays with the elements of the mass, weight balance and dissimilarities of the distinct pieces. The use of different materials interlaced with voids of space builds a relationship of contrasts between the components.
