I make the sculpture I do because if I didn?t, nobody else would. This is not an arrogant stance but an acknowledgement that, for me, making sculpture is a genuinely creative act. I couldn?t imagine not making it. When I am removed from the act of making it for a length of time I get very unsettled. It is so essential to the way I live. Even when the work is not progressing well I thrive on the challenge.
The sculpture is classical. When I am making it I am not concerned with politics or the state of the world, I am only concerned with creating beautiful works. This beauty could be expressed through strength, fragility, elegance, power, rhythm or movement which are all fundamental elements of my work.
