Description

"The forms that I find necessary to assert, are meant to be blunt reminders of primordial strife and struggle, reminiscent of these brute forces that not only produced life, but in turn threatened to destroy it...society may be on the threshold of a great transformation---we will again see the emergence and meaning of the Baroque symbol, revealing a psychic life of organic growth, that itself has the power of regeneration and transcendence... The rhythm between the discipline of the Classic and the emotional stirring of the Baroque may well establish a new synthesis toward the completeness of man and his hopes for the fullness of life."
