THE JOY of ART #26, Against Gravity, 1987
During these increasingly insecure times around the world let’s
savor the quiet joy of discovering art - at Museums, Galleries,
in Life, and within ourselves.
These sculptures from 1987 are part of a group of small and
large abstract sculptures playing with gravity; mass and weight
are balanced on top of delicate supports. Today, they seem to
look like ballet dancers. Wooden blocks, coat hangers, glue.
Height from 16” to 21” (41cm to 53cm).
“He who uses simple techniques must not be afraid to appear
banal”. Henri Matisse.
Each of my small and monumental sculptures invites multiple
points of view, like encountering different sculptures in one.
I want to share the joy of creating art - free of issues, and trends.
Whereas the spirit of the Bauhaus economy guides my art, play
creates it. “No Rules!”, David Smith.
