The Cross-Lap series takes its name from the type of joinery used to assemble these intersecting figures. Overlapping shadows cast by stone sculptures in the Standing Stone and Void series inspired the contours of the planar projections in Cross-Lap. From careful observation, a vocabulary of polygons were cataloged and used to inform the delicate wood projections. Because of the planarity of the surfaces, the work expands and contracts as it turns, each plane unfolding itself to the viewer. From peripheral boundaries, the 2 dimensional phrases describe a dynamic volume, often the progressive evolution of one silhouette to another.
He plays with the immovability of the mass to make it appear moveable, playing too with our visual and physical senses of balance.
