Nathan Phillips SquareMy sculptures are personal and I try to reference the outside world through the filter of my thoughts and emotions. I am a self taught artist and developed my own tools and techniques over 20 years of experimentation. Nature, movement and human body inspire most of my work. My new adventure in wood are free forms, organic and abstract in shape. I consider myself fortunate to work with material that is alive and transforming. My works are an amalgam of angle cut pieces of wood, glued together, reinforced with steel cables and hand sanded or turned on a lathe. I use variety of woods and incorporate segmented and inlaying methods. My aim is to continue exploring new ideas in wood and bring them to reality.
