«My total conscious search in life has been for a new seeing, a new image, a new insight. This search not only includes the object, but the in-between place. The dawns and the dusks. The objective world, the heavenly spheres, the places between the land and the sea... Whatever creation man invents, the image can be found in nature. We cannot see anything that we are not already aware of. The inner, the outer One. In one way it is a disservice to discuss separate works because it is the total environment that is important. It is not only sculpture, it is a whole world».
