    In 2004 when I started the Cascade series I produced a single piece. By complete accident it resembled a muscular male torso. It was simply made, gold metal leaf on thin magazine pages, a strip of balsa wood across the top with a translucent overlay hanging from it. For as pleased as I was with it and the techniques I forbid myself from purposely producing Torsos.

 

    As much as I like the methodology I developed I wanted to move on, but couldn't. I thought if I permitted the torsos I might be free to grow. I will know soon.
