Description

'I make these sculptures because they're abstract forms related somewhere to organic shapes. Just nothing more than pure experiments in form. They are exercises in form. Purely form. Very little else.

This is what excites me, making new forms [that] bring together images that have never been seen before. Pehaps they are a kind of anthropomorphic engineering that has grown out of being of the Pacific- open, generous and abundant.'
