1977

Twisted Sister (1.21 min) Cherry wood. Pine Run, New Jersey. Not influenced by E.T. (which it predated). This cherry tree trunk contained knots that became integrated into the sculpture. I opened up a space between two legs, which curved asymmetrically to define an interesting negative form. On one leg surface, I created a relief based on Indonesian traditions.

1976

Gelassenheit (Let It Be) (1.24. min) Black walnut. Pine Run, New Jersey. Influenced by Heidegger’s ontology of unfolding beings, I let the character of the log lead me to bring out the beauty of its colorful grain and core. I tried to form interesting sweeping shapes that portray and enhance the strength and solidity of the log’s mass.
