I began making small figurative sculptures of wax and pigment in response to the events at the World Trade Center and the Pentagon of September 11, 2001. Reports of family members and friends searching for their loved ones grew while the absence of reports of wounded and dead took on an even more haunted tone. As I listened to the news, increasingly distressed, my personal memorial took shape. Each figure I made represented a person from a country that lost a citizen to the terrorist attacks. Now, years later, the original number of figures has been surpassed yet I continue to add to my memorial. The series, called “Some of the Missing”, provides me with a powerful means to express my love for the human form and the depth of my feelings.
