I hope to post some images of work my work in the near future, but this is likely to be supported by a new web site design. Please bear with me.
“Establishing yourself, furnishing a house, building up a comfortable existence, and having that menace hanging over your head all the time - no, I prefer to live in hotels, cafés, just passing through.” — Alberto Giacometti

Explaining that “The artist should know how to dig out the being that is within matter,” Brancusi sought to create sculptures that conveyed the true essence of his subjects, be they animals, people, or objects by concentrating on highly simplified forms free from ornamentation. While many regarded his art as abstract, the artist disagreed; he insisted on the representational nature of his works, asserting that they disclosed a fundamental, often concealed, reality.
