A significant amount of my artwork has
included the human figure in one form or another. My work
has included life-size figures, portions of figures, and installations
using mannequins. Life-size figures appeal to me for the presence
they create in a room. We are "programmed" (psychologically
if not biologically) to relate to the human form in certain
ways. When a viewer encounters a figurative sculpture he brings
a certain familiarity which, at least for a moment, allows
him to feel a likeness to the sculpture. The viewer also feels
his difference, of course, and from this contradiction he
must draw some meaning. Since much of my work is oriented
toward psychological and interpersonal issues, the human form
is a natural choice.
The underlying concepts of my sculptures
often guide my choices of materials. When possible, I select
materials and construction techniques that reinforce the underlying
concept of the piece.
