Linear Sculpture - Sculpture in Lines

spiral and counter spiral.
1976 - renversé en dehors- cunifer - 94x66x90cm

My first works were solid volumes. Unknowingly they were enclosed - determined by their contours. I started to realize that I needed these as guidelines which enabled me to tool the surfaces which I needed to compose my sculptures. Perhaps "compose" is a big word because it implies that I the line came after the surface in my plans; but actually the shapes flowed from the linear contours. So along the way I recognized that they were for me more important than the volume itself. They defined the space within the sculpture.
