Another Morning

Sometimes I play with bringing the body into the work more directly than relating to a sensual object like a stone carving. Carved sculpture involves the body by relating to its form and by touch or the desire to touch. Another Morning, as well as much installation art, involved the body whether the viewer physically got on the trampoline or not because they could feel how it would be to strive for that first warm cup – “the breakfast of champions.”

This piece was criticized as a “one liner” but sometimes that is enough for me, especially when it is among less accessible works in a show. Clarity and humor can be refreshing.
