Demonstration Plastik abb.163, the piece included in the Small Works exhibition, is a signature work, a particularly interesting bronze sculpture in the collection… describing a farcical situation in which the figure, grasping a commonplace chair and lifting a cinder block brick, becomes a human counterbalance. A crucial tension (bisecting space) is achieved as this figure […]

Out of chaos comes periods of order and stability, what comes next is up to the society and the individual. Through great chaos has spawned unprecedented reform and advancements.

To many artists, I would guess that submitting to the Small Works Exhibition would be working under a constraint to keep the piece within the size limitations. In contrast, for me it is more of a permission to expand. Most of my typical work is in the very small scale of jewelry. This also applies […]
