Sculptures from a residency at Maple Street Construct in Omaha Nebraska.
Carved from salvaged wood that had been used for the ground shoring for the Dakota Pipeline. The wood had stored on a farm in Iowa and had been caught on fire by an arsonist.
It is my belief that every material holds an energy within it. That energy can be stripped away, harnessed and empowered by the processes put upon it. My intent was to take the wood that was used as shoring in the building of the Dakota Access pipeline and do all of the above with it.
