-- Creating the sculpture
In all of my artistic work, I try to represent a very personal vision of my subject matter and the target audience for whom the finished work is intended. In my sculpture I want to let my passions and emotions dominate the pieces I create rather than trying to make accurate representations of what I see directly. In my figurative work, although I look at the model and capture the geometry of the figure, I then adjust the sculptural gesture and features to match my inner view of the model to better reflect my own emotion and mood, thereby offer ing the viewer an insight of the person depicted in the sculpture.
I am passionate about the individualistic figurative works I create, and as a member of the Beaumont Sculpting group for 7 years have now created more than a dozen bronze and resin nudes. I have also done over a half dozen more abstract assembled works based on my heritage as a child survivor of the Holocaust. I have a number of themes that I am trying to convey to the public about tolerance in those works, and have participated and even curated, a number of exhibitions by joining with other artists. This provides me with more extensive opportunities to make my social views a forum for helping the viewing public to change the world to one which is devoid of intolerance and persecution
