.there's a lot more metal than usual\, have you noticed that?
I have noticed\, but I don’t know why\, o ther than a normal difference in emphasis. In many instances with these ne wer works\, the added metal is aluminum plate\, used as a fairly mute elem ent and these serve as trays\, in a sense\, similar to the role that canva s plays in a painting. The reflectivity and neutral color of aluminum offe rs a quiet complication\, but also holds the other elements in the sculptu re\, both physically and compositionally. Two of the works contain cast br onze\, which has been a material and process that I have used for many yea rs.

.pattern and decoration in sculpture\, you ad dress that often in this body of work\, but always keep us coming back to sculpture. is juggling that an effort?
I don’t find th is an undue effort\, but I agree that it presents a paradox. Traditional p ottery decoration throughout many centuries and cultures balances this int egration. Because I always begin with a drawing in the process that leads to a sculpture\, and geometry is the visual language that I use\, pattern and decoration can easily appear within the drawing. But these elements co me from the overall\, circumscribed form and usually fit within its visual logic\, as a breaking down or highlighting of constituent parts. Conseque ntly\, the pattern -- as it’s transposed to a sculpture\, takes on a struc tural role and\, I think\, grows from the center of the sculpture rather t han laying on the surface.
