Learning to listen

MAY 10, 2018
One very important thing that I have learned over the years that is when your sculptures start talking to you it is very wise to listen. “Moon Rocketship Midland Beach March 2018”
This is just one of several pages of a now abounded print catalog that I had been working on. It was never good enough for me to simply sculpt something I always had a story that went with each piece. These prints kind of reflect my minds eye, I am now and have been forever a daydreamer and I kind of live in a world of my own making. Unlike most artists who draw from the world around them I have always chosen to bring to life a parallel world, an imagined world in which things move fly and make noise.
Growing up on an island (Staten Island) completely surrounded by water how could this not affect my work. The beach was kind of a second home to me in the early part of my formative life. Hence the term “Water-Mations” from a small boy with a very active imagination that simply loved to sit and daydream the whole daylong
