A Resemblance


In each of these four works there is an attempt to connect specific parts of the sculpture with a particular piece of classical drapery and/or contemporary images of war. I don’t expect the viewer to make specific compositional connections, what I do hope is that there is a rush of emotion—a frisson. A shutter of understanding induced by the resemblance between a form discovered in the sculpture, and another found where memory lives within the viewer.
