SCULPTURE GALLERY

My sculpture reflects an enduring interest in expressing meaning through the use of the human form. I depict this form mostly through abstract means by creating visually altered figures in order to convey the psychological elements of humanity.

For example, in "Silent Scream," I transpose the idea of a ruin onto a human head. Given my Holocaust background, ruins have always fascinated me, and psychologically, this piece represents the ruinous impact wars and destruction always have on the human mind. In "Survivor #1," the head has an outer expression of strength yet it lacks a central core. It is open and transparent like a ghost, floating through but not completely a part of the landscape—a feeling many child survivors share.

In creating these abstract forms, I use terracotta, plaster, hydrocal, metal, bronze or bonded bronze. As with the paintings and prints, my sculptures are designed to guide the viewer toward the meaning behind the surface.
