"The interest in the Object/Space/Light/Paint materials is complex and has its origins in learning to paint and observe natural phenomena. There was a concrete link to painters of the past. Painting as a structure - an object made. Structure or even sculpture itself appeared. Sculpture steps out of painting. Light problems, found in shaped work particularly rely on optical contributions. So sculpture steps back into painting where the conditions can be fixed. . The overall concern was for landscape or related elements of nature."
