“Offering” is the second sculpture in a series that has its roots in my graduate school days when I was first turned on to the idea of “activated space”… negative space, but amped up. I had begun to study the artwork of Eric Ore, Eduardo Chillida, Martin Puryear, Antony Gormley, Richard Deacon and others who had opened my mind to the shape-shifting possibilities of the anything but negative, negative space. Even renown architect I. M. Pei was in on the paradigm shift. You really need to see the entrance to the Louvre in Paris. Pei’s design will blow you away.
