Abstract: The show on exhibit at Weatherspoon Gallery from way first to May ninth, 1968, presents the body of this thesis. The work is divided into constructions, executed in Color-Aid paper on a ground of heavy white paper, and others in Formica, mounted on Plexiglas or Formica. This body of work was executed during the period from late February to end of April. Previously, I had concentrated on making sculpture in the round, by carving wood or modeling clay. In the course of my work, I came to value clarity of organization over originality of form. Perhaps this was the influence of the Bauhaus curricula I researched for, and utilized in, the course I taught in the fall of 1967. My forms became, in turn, more limited in modulation and movement, as I tried to create clearer, stronger compositions. I realized that I was not intent on exploring the qualities of my materials, but rather the range of my ideas.
