Biography

I BEGAN TO DRAW THE MOONSET ON THE LAKE, THEN TO PAINT THE SETTING SUN. I LOVED NATURE. I COULD HAVE SPENT MY LIFE WORKING IN ONE OR TWO DIMENSIONS DOING THIS BUT I ‘TOOK THE PATH LESS TRAVELLED AND THAT MADE ALL THE DIFFERENCE’ TO QUOTE POET ROBERT FROST. I BEGAN TO EXPLORE THE CONCEPT OF THREE DIMENSIONS ENDING MY‘CREATION FLAT’ PERIOD, SO THAT TO THIS DAY, THOUGH I OFTEN DRAW AND SKETCH AND KEEP A JOURNAL, THE LAST 5 YEARS I HAVE BECOME AWARE I HAVE INCORPORATED EVEN A NEW “FOURTH” DIMENSION INTO MY SCULPTURES: “LIGHT”

Artist Statement

MY ART INTENTION HAS NEVER CHANGED: IT IS TO BE ORIGINAL, UNIQUE, AND NEVER TO COPY: EVEN MYSELF. I HAVE OVER THE PAST 35 YEARS MADE 500 SCULPTURES NOT TWO IDENTICAL, UNLESS THEY WERE A NUMBERED EDITION OF BRONZES. I HAVE USED EVERY MATERIAL FROM BRONZE, ALUMINUM, WOOD, DRIFTWOOD, CLAY, WAX, PLASTER, STEEL, SHELLS, STONE: MARBLE, ALABASTER,LIMESTONE,PIERRE ST.MARC, PIETRO DEL VESUVIO,GRANITE…INCLUDING VARIOUS FOUND OBJECTS: THE SHAPE INSIDE THE SCULPTURE AND THE SHAPE OUTSIDE THE SCULPTURE ARE EQUALLY IMPORTANT. AS I WORK, I CONSTANTLY CIRCLE THE PIECE: MY VISION OF THE SCULPTURE CREATED BEING EQUALLY AS IMPORTANT AS MY COMPLICATED TOOLS.
