“My bronzes are expressions of my response to Biblical premises regarding the nature of God and the created order. First among these are the estrangement of man from God and from human beings. I try to show the distortions and ironies this estrangement creates. My images deal with creature-hood, alienation, resurrection, joy, praise, and gratitude to God. I derive hope from the fact that we receive ‘fresh strength’ from God every day. But the things we see are transient; it is the invisible things that we have hope in, that are truly permanent (II Corinthians 4:16-18).”
