Artists Statement
He calls it Essentialism, but I don’t know. Harold takes the perfectly good bronze figurative dance sculptures he’s carved for 25 years and subtracts everything that makes them--uh, fussy. Gone are the eyelashes and fingernails and heck, all of the details.  The texture is gone and even the color (his new pieces are all-white bronze).  He even subtracted the volume.  Yep.  They are like, say potato chips, but really curvy and long.  You gotta see ‘em.  No really.  You’ve never seen anything like it.
He lived all his life in the West.  A grey-beard, Stanford boy--engineering.  Uses computers to design his prototypes and then makes them out of resins and such then casts them in bronze.  Says people like bronze and that he’s seen bronze four-thousand years old.  I think he likes that it’s permanent--and beautiful.
