The artist's statement is as follows: "Having taught 2-D and 3-D design for many years, I am always inventing problems about visual relationships, and then, by visual jury-rigging, seeking to resolve those problems with whatever physical materials will do the job. Hence a variety of stuff comes together to form new entities. Maybe the art is trying to reveal the union between spiritual and physical aspects of the world. The former is emphasized by the overall mathematical or geometric form more or less evident in some of the art, and the latter by the rawness of the materials used to give it form and structure."
