Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

When I am working I like to listen to classical music, especially Italian opera. I do not understand any of it I just like the sound. It becomes abstract sound compositions. Sometimes I cry when I hear Andrea Bocelli. No clue what he is saying even though he tears me up in a great way. This piece reminds me of a female deep voice singing Italien opera. It can be anything you want it to be. I have to give it a name.

If I was to try to give a corporate logo meaning to this piece I would say “Our operation works like a fine opera. It will be a pleasure working with us.”

Artist Profile

Born: 1941

Hometown: Burlington, WI

Based in: Burlington, WI

I have an ambitious approach to life ... and to art ... make something happen every day ... but most of all have fun doing it! A sculptor first, and now working in 2D, I do my best to do just that. Presented here are examples of some of my work. •• My sculpture runs the gamut from abstract, to figurative, to architectural. The materials and methods used are diverse ... from figures modeled in clay or wax, then cast in pewter or bronze ... to aluminum maquettes (produced by evaporative pattern casting) which serve as the 3D blueprints for the pieces that are enlarged and fabricated from sheet metal of all kinds.
