Although much slower than actual drawing, I liken these figures to 3-D gesture drawings. Sketches. I enjoy the simple black
line from the base steel wire. Each figure completed invites infinite other variations on the form. Their significance is no greater
than what is conveyed through the essential gesture and contour of the line.
It is an intimate familiarity with these figures which draws me to contemplate the subtleties of animation in motion and at rest,
and which inspires me to draw them into the multiplicities of posture and poise that delight my eye and accompany my soul in
these simple pleasures of daily life. Curiously resonant of my own mood, gesture and posture, the forms that evolve sometimes
happen despite my intentions, the figures somehow assuming a life of their own. Ive learned to step aside a bit to let them
become their own presence.
