Catalogue Note

"I make real, physical forms, but they're made out of color, which as a quality is, at the outset, abstract. I try to use color as if it were a material; I make a sculpture out of, say, 'red' or 'blue.' So my interest in having a piece look not only conventionally physical, but also in the next moment having it look like it could be something imagined, almost a hallucination, is well served by using color."
