I am best known for multi-elemental sculptures, but long wondered what gives a sculpture its oomph. And so I began looking closely at the details of the documentation of the sculptures. Could these details show the personality of the works? And so these banners emerged, each initiated from a documentary detail and then redefined through continued expansion and contraction. I call this body of work the Essential Drawings. For they embody the essential of a three-dimensional entity, be that essential called a soul, stardust reinstalled, or just simply the connection between us all.
