Working in Pieces

Updated: Oct 15, 2018

22 January 2018 I have a casting of Zeus’ head that I picked up in Athens years ago. It has moved from home to studio to home again, and subsequently broke. I had such wonderful memories sailing the Greek islands with my friends that I hated to part with it.


Then there were the pieces of an organ that I purchased on the premise that if I could take it apart, then and there (and get it into the car), I could purchase it very cheaply. It was badly damaged but had such beautiful carvings on it that I had to have it. I took it apart over two years ago and it has been living in the garage ever since.


These are large items and they need a large scale to get them to live together. So these parts waited as I tend to work in a smaller scale. I woke up recently dreaming of a work with these pieces. It was only a rough idea but I have found that it’s best to follow a vision, when they happen, where ever it leads. It would be nice to have another large piece for my show at Art Expo, New York in April but it will depend on if this was merely a vision or only a dream.
