Description:

28" x 12" x 8"

Clay and Plaster of Paris

"I was doing at that time a number of self-referential pieces, using my face and working from a model. The figures, although not in motion, often seemed about to speak, or looked out beyond the viewer. I wanted to give the impression that a great deal of emotion and thought was going on below the surface as is often the case. The piece was deliberately fragmented: built with clay, fired in the kiln, broken down, patched with Plaster of Paris, and then painted. I believed that what remained was more the essence of the figure, and considering the basic quality of a person or more universally, humanity, seemed important to me."
