In this, his first body of work in color--produced when he was in his mid-eighties--"the real world recedes to form the backdrop for a more private and introspective world. The almost surreal world he has created in these images is peopled with figures molded in glass and wood and ceramic. The sequence of images reads like a poem--magical in its intensity, musical in its cadence."--the publisher
