Question 19: Which of your pieces are you most satisfied with, and why is that so?

Transcription


You’re satisfied but for a few of the pieces the satisfaction is more long-lasting. Why is that? Probably because as you develop there are some pieces that you continue to be able to identify with, but this fades with time also. You change and they belong to the past. In a few cases, you remain close to the pieces forever. I still identify with a few of mine despite the passage of years. I particularly treasure one of my pieces that was exhibited only once, and I keep it safe in my house, L’Homme qui pointe les hommes qui marchent (Man pointing to marching men). It was the point of departure for another work that I created for a sculpture garden at the University of New Brunswick. That’s a piece that whenever I look at it today, it still has an impact. So it’s one of those pieces that I continue to identify with.
