I am very happy with printmaking and drawing in several mediums. I love charcoal. I love oil pastels. But at heart I am a sculptor. I am particularly happy with my works on paper when they capture a feeling of deep space.
For a number of reasons I stopped making large constructions and sculptures and installations. I made some smaller ones, and then I didn’t work in 3D at all. I have included images of several of them here in my website, in Archives, because I don’t want them to pass into oblivion, even though most no longer exist. They are a very important part of my art life and my art biography. And I believe now that I am teaching sculpture once again, that I am not quite done with making it.
Story of the Sea is a new beginning, a composition in three dimensions enclosing ten monotypes. This is an ideal for me, a direction forward.
