"As a visual artist I execute my ideas in sculpture and drawings. My motivation for these sculptures comes frmo my love of jazz music, architecture, industrial and auto based imagery. I am visually absorbed by these things and construct pieces that incorporate these influences by balancing solid forms and open spaces and orchestrating colors in steel and wood.
My recent extension into large geometric powder-coated steel sculptures has proved to be a rewarding expansion of my artistc vision." - Andrew Libertone
