I see my work as expressing both male and female elements within a lively tension. Pulling from the opposite polls; negative, positive, space and form, inner and outer. Often in my recent works I discern an inner form that contradicts the outer shape. This suggests to me a coming together of new elements that are involved in combustion.
In the past I have been involved in the interplay of figures in their surrounding space and particularly have avoided primadonnas or center stage soliloquies. Figures in environment, relating to each other or to their atmosphere, the round of daily involvement. Now I see pregnant forms with inner meaning that seem to imply an urgency of delivery. I see now that there is both the outer relationship between the self and the other and the relationship between the inner and the outer self. A genie in a bottle.
