Remainders

MORE INFORMATION

In 1985 I began my work with wood. I instinctively kept all the remnants that were by-products of my creations.  It seemed to me irreverent to burn, or throw out these scraps and I sensed that I would eventually use them.  In between building large, long term projects, I often turned to my sorted-by-size collection and fashioned new, smaller sculptures.   When I moved to Flagstaff,  the boxed remnants came with me.

Two years ago I started some new experiments with the smallest of my scrap collection.  When invited to put together this exhibit, it seemed natural that the entire ensemble should emerge from these Remainders.

My obsession to save left over bits and pieces of wood comes, I think, from my fascination with the material and a sense it should be honored.   Wood is an endangered resource - perhaps not everyone agrees with this - but I believe it is so nevertheless.  Since I use this material for my own, personal exploration, the least I can do is not discard it casually.

In this particular exhibit, many of the remainders came from the creation of earlier pieces, some I found at the side of the road, and others were generously donated to me.   I thank those who supported my endeavors in this way.
