high relief limestone carving
…From an evolving series of modeled, cast and carved heads and masks exploring nuances of expressing the powerful, time honored genre of imaging the human head. This series is charged by the varying dynamics of carving directly in various types of stone & wood as contrasted with the additive processes of modeling in clay and wax and then making molds and limited studio cast editions thereof. Each approach informs my seeing, understanding and rendering differently yet symbiotically thereby fueling the subsequent pieces evolving in this series.
