This piece was made from a cast of my son Jesse's arm and an ivy root. I wanted to create that combination of man and nature in one object but also to give it that visceral edge that reminds us of veins and blood flow. the gesture that is captured here contains certain Art Historical references and is a symbolic reaching out toward the future. 'What future?'
