While sculpting “Doubt Kills The Warrior,” I kept returning to the torso and how it held the core of the movement. I was inspired to focus on that part of the piece at a grand scale. I wanted to concentrate on the essence and axis of the movement, illuminating that at the center of everything lays risk, release, and making oneself visible.
Highlighting a small section of a form has been a theme of my work forever. It all comes back to focusing on the quintessence of form, movement, and beauty. The geometric windows in my architectural work, like “Cradle,” “Rolling Hills,” and “Progression of Four” all have been an exploration and variation on this theme.
Between the scale and the gesture itself, this piece is really about being fearless (which may ultimately be the title of the piece)—open, exposed, grand and expansive.
More to come...
