This is me in March 1980. I am now five months into my residency as Sault Saint Marie’s College of Art & Technology “Artist is Residence”. As we can see “Files” in clay has been created , “On Monday Night It’s Football” is finished and figurative component of “Maria’s Curtain” has fallen to the ground.
I call the work “Files” in reference the files I was keeping about various Roman tombs.
Here in the foreground we can see the model for the second version of “Files”.
