The box form
sculptures are derived from the concept of levels of knowledge.
Initially, the sculptures may appear as abstract forms. To someone familiar
with Anasazi culture, the forms are known. The person aware of Anasazi
history may think that they know the relationship between "Basketmaker
House" and "Kiva". But, it is the person familiar with Hopi mythology
who really knows the relationship. However, as always, it is only the
maker of the object who knows the truth or otherwise of the piece. For
it is he who knows what is revealed and what is withheld.
The box form series of sculptures is derived in my interest in minimal
forms, and forms placed on the ground. These forms are therefore introverted.
They do not approach the viewer with their meaning. It is the task of
the viewer to determine the meaning, and what is revealed or concealed
in the form.
