Whether the focus is historical, poetical or theoretical, to look at an artist’s corpus of work always constitutes a journey into the perceptions and projections that form the artist’s way of seeing. It is an enriching investigation into the particular dynamics between materials, ideas and shapes that underlie each art work. It is the fulfilling experience of creatively translating into words someone else’s world view.
