My first mobile was created out of scraps of copper, wire and brass spread out on my bed in 1964. A significant influence for that creation came from Cervantes with whom I shared a deep conviction that the “impossible dream” could be lived and experienced. My mission remains to spread that brand of optimism, which defies those who would deny the world an opportunity to exist in balance and harmony. It is interesting to me that none of my mobiles needed planning or engineering (except for safety factors), but rather they grow from a creative process that seems to reside in my soul. That first mobile has a primitive figure of Don Quixote moving in a perpetual quest. My art, my life. The forms of the clouds and windmills in “Don Quixote” were created from a source unknown, but when completed, filled the space as if intended.
