Using a vocabulary of extremely simple forms whose scale ranges from three to nine feet, these objects describe volumes in space. Some of the pieces are easily identifiable as vessels and may allude to holding volumes of water. Others are pure abstraction holding only quantities of air and space. By taking away any real solid mass, I am left with just the skins of glass, bronze or graphite that define a measure of capacity. Other objects are identifiable as a ramp (“PLANE”) that divides space with a simple line or as a wheel (“CIRCULAR OBJECT ONE”) that makes the center volume of air as important as the white structure itself.
