This 2014 work is a pair of similar but different forms in dialogue, both sending and receiving--Through this resonation--Gives voice to both.


The forms are in both physical and conceptual dialogue--Sending and receiving through the resonation of the convex and concave surfaces.


The artist has worked with this concept of pairs in dialogue over his past 50 plus years of work. Several other examples are at his Foundation/Sculpture Park in Warner Springs where they are also in dialogue with nature.
