In some works it is my intention to develop the kind of forms nature might create if only heat and steel were available to her.
To me the introduction of direct metal techniques gives the means to treat sculpture in increasingly expressive terms.
We can graft onto this linear-spatial development elements of any former sculptural tradition, and are now able to position sculptural units freely in space, make dramatic changes in scale, mass, movement, weight, and employ heterogenous materials in a single work. We have the possibility of a greatly enriched sculptural language.
Now sculpture can be its own subject, and its object can be to express itself, by allusion to its traditions, involvement with its new means, and interaction with its environment.
