Sculpture is nonverbal communication between artist and viewer. The shared experience I have used in my marble sculpture, the basis of the language, is the Old Testament. For the forms, the sentence structure of the language, I choose common items or figurative references. Using the Old Testament reference and the poetic placement of contemporary forms, a new idea in form is presented. It uses the well known characters from the ancient text and puts them into a contemporary visual relevance. For this body of work I chose marble. It is directly from nature. It reveals its beauty only after an arduous process of determined effort. It's seriousness is appropriate for my feelings about the subject matter.
