Artist Statement

gallasr07I have become increasingly infatuated with objects in nature that are created by the elements and the process of time. For example, my new works were conceived after many visits to the southern California coastline. Each day, the organic and non-organic elements along with the ocean’s edge rearrange into astonishing new visual presentations in this natural and complex landscapes. In turn, I strive to infuse my work with this idea of creating a new language from nature’s mysterious applications of organic compatibility; this continues to deeply engage me in my new works. I view these latest endeavors as “New Terran Sculptures”.
