Reclining Figure. 25”x 39”x 39” Steel, wood, broom sticks, filter, fabric, rubber, graphite and spray paint. 2010
Willem De Kooning knocked on my door when this piece was in the process of being fabricated. He looked at it and said, "No, it's all wrong. There is no eyes, nose, or mouth." I asked him if he thought it was a man or woman. He replied, "It does not really matter...but if it does not have a mouth, it can't possibly be a woman."
I gave her a mouth and eyes.

Rocky Sez...Rocky Dice... 46”x 20”x 9” Steel, wire, fabric, bucket, paper, spray paint, and Durham’s Rock Hard Putty can. 2010
The Rock Water Putty can was the springboard for this piece-particularly the odd image/text of the weight lifter and accompanying quote, "Rocky Sez...Rocky Dice".
Here is a history of the company and product.
