"Sometimes artists take themselves too seriously. I try to do at least one spoof each year. "Different art speaks to different people . . . Aren't we glad?
Remember the famous painting "American Gothic" showing an old farmer with a pitchfork ? Well, in my sculpture, the old farmer has thrown down his pitchfork and grabbed a golf club. He replaced that solemn old woman with a young swinger - - - I called it "Modern Gothic"
"Humor in the right places can give people a lift." "A conversation piece stimulates social participation and tends to serve as an ice-breaker."
