I have officially accepted a full-time, tenure track position in the sculpture department at the University of North Carolina starting in the Fall. Laura, Maggie and I will be relocating to Asheville, NC this summer. To visit the UNCA Department of Art website, click HERE.
For the last 2 years my sculpture Rooted has lived in the sculpture garden at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY. I recently deinstalled it, but it will live on in Denmark next summer. I have been invited to recreate the piece for Sculpture by the Sea – Aarhus. Please check back next year for details. For more information about Sculpture by the Sea, click HERE
After deinstalling Rooted, the curator at Pratt invited me to set up my piece Ascent, which was originally installed at a private residence in Charleston, SC. It will be on view in Pratt’s sculpture garden until the fall of 2013. If you are in the area please check it out. To view the sculpture, click HERE.

I just uploaded images of some new sculptures to my website. A Hard Day’s Work is definitely a departure from my usual work, but I’ve really been enjoying the materials/processes and I think the results are very engaging. If you’re reading this and have a few moments, let me know what you think. To view the work, click HERE.

I’m about to board my plane back to the US and conclude my stay here in South Korea. For the past 10 days I have lived and worked with 25 Korean, Japanese, Swedish and Austrian artists in a residency-type environment. Each artist was expected to choose an area on Jarasum Island (Gapyeong County, NE of Seoul) and create a sculptural installation that responded to that site using predominantly natural materials. My installation is titled Moving Mountains and references one of South Korea’s most impressive aspects – their mountains! The opening reception included traditional Korean dancers, parade through the city and ceremonies honoring the spirits of agriculture. It was amazingly beautiful and I am proud to have been a participant. For more information about the Baggat Art Organization, click HERE.
I’ve been invited to South Korea for the 2012 Jara Island International Baggat Art Exhibition . Now in its 31st year, this exhibition is held outdoors on Jarasum Island in February. Each participating artist creates a sculptural installation that responds to the environment using predominantly natural materials. To view the website with images from previous years, click HERE.
