About the Work
“My work grows out of mathematics and architecture – geometry, symmetry and rhythm – line, plane and volume – visual perception and spatial understanding. They are three-dimensional patterns that are at once familiar and foreign. Heavy forms that imply weightlessness creating a tempting and engaging spatial experience. Line teasing out plane, plane carving out volume – actual, implied or perceived and explored through materials traditionally used in the built environment.” – Dee Briggs
“Mi trabajo surge de las matemáticas y la arquitectura – geometría, simetría y ritmo – línea, plano y volumen – percepción visual y comprensión espacial; son patrones tridimensionales que son a la vez familiares y extraños. Formas pesadas que implican ingravidez creando una experiencia espacial tentadora y atractiva; línea que extrae el plano, plano que esculpe el volumen: real, implícito o percibido y explorado a través de materiales tradicionalmente utilizados en el entorno construido”. – Dee Briggs
