I consider everything I do as having a strong sculptural
element, even my photography. Here my true sculpture is solid, 3-dimensional,
and large-scale. The Portrait Figurative pieces are generally life-size,
sculpted in clay and then are casted in other materials. These Portraits
are by commission only .
"A New Level of Reality" -
Is a painted steel sculpture portraying the after effects of September
11th and the new reality we are living under. The piece is 25 feet
by 21 feet. Private Collection.
The World Trade Center Memorial Proposal -"The
Dove" is the largest proposed free standing maze,
made entirely from laminated glass. Stronger than concrete, the
glass will endure and would be a fitting memorial to the fallen
victims of September 11th. The names of the fallen would be engraved
permanently on the glass walls. The designed would be viewed at
night by fiber-optic lights. Viewed by air it would be a awe inspiring
sight and a testimony to our freedom. The Dove, would have been
an unforgettable memorial to the fallen as well as to the living,
because in a hundred years from now, we need this monument to be
a wonder to the free world.
I am sorry to say my proposal was not chosen, nor
anyone else's out of 5,000 entries that didn't come from the old
mind set of the 80's that has now become so generic since Maya Lin
designed the then original Vietnam War Memorial, more than two decades
ago. The chosen design for the memorial site is typical of the stark
stone designs you see in city plazas and malls all over the country,
neither memorable nor original.
