Each of these works expresses the experience of a particular place – the light, the air, the colors, and how time was spent there. They are the results of recalling these times and places through conversations, photographs, keepsakes and travel.
I want the sculptures to convey the delight and the yearning that persists when landscape impacts the innermost self. Saturated or fading color, undulating and translucent forms emphasize the sensual qualities of these attachments. Suspending, draping and repetition mark time and distance.
Titles commemorate and give clues, but I like there to be plenty of breathing room so that being with the work gives rise to surprising associations and elastic meaning in the viewer’s imagination.
