48.0 x 16.1 x 12.6 (inch)Adolescent boys and girls begin to emphasize that quality of being not yet an adult, yet already no longer a child. There is a sense of incompleteness to humans in this state, yet as an existence, there is a pure kind of beauty in it. Their appearances seem, in this way, intermediary – they are what lies “between” man and god, nature and humanity, the individual and society; they symbolize the transcendence of all boundary lines. Theirs is a powerful existence in the midst of flux: a fleeting, flickering moment within the perpetual transformations of the process of growing up. I am trying to sense the possibilities of sculpture that exist at these “boundary lines”.
