Reclining Figure

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.
