Modeled Boston, MA
cast Johnston, RI
Back in the late 1960s, I started to feel that the two-dimensional,
illusionistic images I was creating as a painter and printmaker were inadequate.
I decided to try sculpture and chose to work in clay.
Almost instinctively, the first image that I visualized while kneading
the clay was a large head. It grew from a height of about 20 inches to
about 40 inches and I knew that the final bronze sculpture would have
to be at least 7 feet high, confronting a viewer as a tangible three-dimensional
image, existing in the same environment.
I wanted the simple outer forms of the bronze to enclose a strong sense
of energy and vitality at its core. I wanted it to become a presence for
the viewer the he/she would identify with.
