Part and Whole


In many respects these works are a continuation of previous sculptures in that they are based on photographic images of the victims of war. The other points of references are classical drapery, and in two cases—my hands. The primary difference here is that I am combining two stones and I make the juncture between the two the focus of the work. A simple question is embedded in each, and it is: What is the difference between part and whole in any physical object? Sculpture included. And how do I know where one begins and the other leaves off.
