“The human form is visual theatre. The human drama, with its full spectrum of emotions, can be witnessed in the lines, postures and movements of the body. We all reflect and instinctively react to its visual expressions. Perhaps it is for this reason that the human body occupies a central place in every form of art. This is to differentiate between the simple reproduction of the human body in art and the use of the human body as emotional expression in art.
“My perception of the human form as theatre, as visual expression, comes to me naturally and is something I have spent two professional careers articulating. It is basic to my art. Come, let me share it with you.”
