Angelika Seik Gallery: I have decided to write about my work in more detail. Here is a start.
While I was at the Paedagogische Hochschule in Weingarten, Germany from 1972-1975 I had to do a course in sculpture. It was to me a decisive time, a ‘Lichtblick’ moment. I used to be a frustrated painter, but after that I knew exactly what I wanted to be: A SCULPTOR ! It would take some time to get there. But on that first afternoon,I was so exited, that I made 3 sculptures in one afternoon and did not want to leave the studio.
'Sitting Figure 1973': In my time at college we had many meetings, when everybody would just sit on the floor while endless discussions went on. The seated figure seemed to me an ideal vehicle to show all sorts of things. It could be a free standing figure and it did not need a plinth.
