Bundles (1987 -Present) are made from scraps leftover from woodworking projects. All different types of wood products are combined to provide diversity, from old recycled barnwood to particle board, plywood, softwoods and hardwoods. They are mostly composed of long, thin strips which have minimal volume and surface in relation to the amount of edge, creating a richness of edge, and a large amount of negative space between the strips. This provides a great deal of complexity in a minimum of space. Each strip is unable to stand on its own but bundled together they synergetically provide the support to hold each other up, many shorter ones forming the foundation for the few tallest ones. Bundles are symbolic of both ourselves and our society, many different elements held together by a common thread: the vortex spiral of the twine, with several elements rising prominently over the rest. The spiral of the twine reflects nature, from the motion of sub-atomic particles and the DNA molecular structure to the shape of galaxies. The twine acting in tension and the strips in compression are a reflection of the yin-yang nature of existence. The Bundles exhibited as a group are a study in scale, the smallest being several inches high to the tallest over twelve feet high. The Bundles have their first public exhibition at the Fenix Gallery in Taos, New Mexico Feb. - Mar. 2004
