exploring the interrelations between my various sculptures, ideas and topics, I discovered that my first works were actually not about form itself - not about form as a goal, but more about the resulting volume when imaginary volumes intersect in space. I was concerned with what happens when two imaginary, and usually identical, forms intersect - what shape results from this action?
The monolinear contours are actually the demarcation of these junctions.
The exterior surface of my sculpture is the combination of the interior surfaces of the intersecting larger forms.I suppose there was never any question of inside or outside. My sculpture is the 'hole' in sculpture as a whole (allow my wordplay).
The aspect of the 'hole' of Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore, who first made this sculptural asset explicit, was used by me in one of my first sculptures (see the bottom left and bottom right sketches). This hole was the building block of this particular work. The two circles are in fact two holes which intersect. The 'skin' stretched over them was for me the surface it was all about.
