Picasso is depicted in his Mediterranean working clothes – Sailor’s vest and shorts, surrounded by images relating to his life. Marie-Terese Walter, his mistress of many years, the blond woman of many paintings, is in his left hand. Inside his body are allusions to his Cubist period and the “Tauromachia” he loved and often drew. The woman in the center of his body represents the many women he used, often destroyed and always needed. The Faun playing the Pan-Pipe, is an image, Picasso used in portraying himself – the mythical figure who, using the magic of his art could draw the world towards him.

We inhabit the world with the animal kingdom, they are our cousins with whom we share the pain and pleasure of the planet we live on. Ferocious, pathetic, playful and pretentious, we also share their characteristics. In our animal sculptures we seek to capture this common ground. Like all living things our animals have moving parts, textures and shades that await to be explored.
Large sculptures keep us busy but we allow time for making beauty in miniature - objects of art to wear. When we see our jewelry displayed on the body of its owner as a statement of his choice, we feel the pleasure of a silent bond, a little secret shared with a stranger.
PROFESSIONS & HOBBIES
The professions and hobbies we practice shape our lives and alter us. This is emphasized in the group of figures who pose, perspire, lecture us, swing bats and golf clubs. They humorously draw us into their activities, make us swing their heads and open hidden doors to expose their hidden secrets and surprises.
Our Universal Figures embrace images of painters, artists and great thinkers we admire. In each we look to express what motivates the figure to be what it is.
