Sculpture '82, A Contemporary Survey
Sonoma State University

My sculpture has always been constructed, assembled.
The underpinnings of my work, both sculpture and drawing, come from architecture; its geometry, its engineering, the orderlyness
of the architectural form in relationship to the organic, ever changing natural world.
In the 1980's I did a series of sculptures that floated
on the water. The movement of the sculpture on the water brought whole new dimensions to the work; heavy wood became buoyant,
light patterns flickered across the surfaces, the mirror image was reflected on the water. Later I did pieces with hanging
ribbons that caught the breeze, making the wind visible. These elements continue to be important in my work.
