topography in my repoussé
work (hammered relief from a single sheet of metal) is the
aesthetic result of pushing the technique farther and higher.
Ever obsessed with pyramidal shapes, in the late 1990's I
began experimenting with creating relief shapes on top of
the relief, something seemingly few artists have attempted.
When asked which is my favorite technique, I usually reply
that it's whatever technique I'm working in at the time, but
I must admit there is really nothing more satisfying than
hammering out these surfaces.
