I simply love form: people, plants, animals, and architecture. As I observe it all, I wish to put my own slant on it, to reinvent it, with my own change of emphasis. For me the richest vein to mine, is the zone between 3D form and drawing; relief sculpture is that zone, it achieves that symbiotic relationship that captures and arrests the image at it’s finest moment. It’s pure theater, Harness form; compose it through your special lens that allows you to See the picture you want, through composition and perspective. Then modulate that with high and low relief. The only thing missing is music.
