“The whole of my development as a sculptor is an attempt to understand and realize more completely what form and shape are about, and to react to form in life, in the human figure, and in past sculpture. This is something that can’t be learnt in a day, for sculpture is a never-ending discovery.” – Henry Moore
Conceived and cast in 1983-84 in an edition of 9.
“I had no idea LOVE would catch on the way it did. Oddly enough, I wasn’t thinking at all about anticipating the Love generation and hippies. It was a spiritual concept. It isn’t a sculpture of love any longer. It’s become the very theme of love itself.” – Robert Indiana
Conceived in 1966 and cast 1998 in an edition of 5, plus 2 artist’s proofs.
“My sculptures are essentially an impressionistic rendering of the figure. Where you see the figure seemingly grow out of the ground, the texture resembles tree bark, rock, or a lava flow. As the eye moves up the sculpture, the finish becomes gentler and more delicately worked, culminated in the hands and the mask, both of which are precisely observed and modeled. ” – Philip Jackson
Conceived and cast in 2001 in an edition of 8.
