Earth From Space

I’m a representational artist.  What should I represent?  I look for the most important things that happened in our lifetimes.  Getting off the earth, escaping the pull of gravity and venturing into space is one of the most significant developments in human history.  Looking back at the sphere of the “Earth” changed everything.  I fell in love with this idea.  From the years 1985 to about ’93, the earth from space was my landscape.  I made many drawings and sculptures.  I liked using traditional materials, carved wood and cast bronze.  It’s funny to me, an image only possible to see in postmodern time rendered in techniques originating in ancient time.
