May S. Marcy Sculpture Court and Garden brochure, c. 1975
Like other moderns, the artist has reduced basic forms to a simple shape. The limitations are established by the planes of the pyramidal overall form. As his medium he has chosen aluminum which is a very modern presence in our daily experience. The curvilinear lines of the circles' edges provide a flowing relief from both the material the artist uses and the confinement of the space the sculpture occupies.
