I learned the importance of past, present and future from Rodin. Never mind he took many of his secrets from Michelangelo, Rodin pioneered creating modern sculptures with the past, present and future all combined in one gesture. That concept became my lodestar . If my sculpted gesture missed a tense, I had chosen the wrong still
point. Try again.
The fifth attempt at my autobiography-of-the-mind became White Step. I worked hard to move from traditional sculpture to the sweeping white forms I pioneered. I felt lonely with a far-from-certain future. I wanted a gesture to depict this feeling.
Finally, I landed on toe-in-the-water and
First Step was born. The delicate hands
and tentative balance resonated with me,
but more with others.
“I felt that way about my new (now ex-)
boyfriend.” “My move to Chicago.” “Getting
my new puppy.”
