Wanting to continue exploring certain qualities I discovered in the form of the shadow, I decided to see if I could bring those insights together with my interest in Greek and Roman stone portraits. Because of history stone was the obvious material. But stone was also interesting because it is, in many respects, the antithesis to the shadow. Each sculpture began with a found photo of an artist whose work was of interest to me. My point was not to carve a likeness in the normal sense; Rather, an aura of the individual recalled through the filter of time.
