Entrances/Chambers
Date: 1998 Dimensions: 6' x 10' x 5' (Sold)


Certain types of architecture have always fascinated me. They are usually simple structures such as silos, storage buildings of all types, early fortress-like castles, abandoned barns and houses, etc.
The four structures in this sculpture have very small openings which one can not enter physically. However one can enter them mentally and once inside one can experience the vast contained space. The work is as much about enclosed space as about concrete forms.
For some, the work creates a sense of mystery, of abandoned habitation, or perhaps temples. Small entrances in storage areas, in caves, in outdoor ovens, etc. are always fascinating. The slit openings in some of the structures have sexual overtones for some viewers.
