Font Size: AAA

His most recent pieces are simplified geometric constructions in steel, painted in brilliant primary and secondary colors. In 'Pillars of Hercules' (1995) each element composing the triptych is eight feet high with geometric cut-outs atop a tubular column. The title refers to the labors performed by Hercules, the Greek mythological hero, and the promontories named for him that flank the eastern entrance to the Straits of Gibraltar.
