Simplify, simplify, simplify. My aim with my work is to simplify and refine, be logical and harmonious. A number of years back, I made these metal sculptures of animals some of which have been included in the exhibit of my non-illustration art, Beyond Books: The Independent Art of Eric Carle currently at The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art. I believe these sculptures are examples of my approach applied to its fullest extent. The most simplified figure I have created.
