Sculptures


Figurative 1962-1966
    I always choose a person with very special characteristics to inspire my sculpture. My concern is to express the inner beauty, harmony and spirit of their sensuous, soft and rounded form.
    The work became more abstract. All the figures were later cast in bronze.

Monumental / Minimal Abstraction 1966-1970
    Though these sculptures were made in small scale, the feeling and intention is heroic. All are bronze cast. Several of the works have been realized in large scale.

Lyrical Abstraction 1971-1978
    When I moved to New York City my work became more open, lyrical and colorful. The large loft allowed me to realize my greater vision. Much later these sculptures found their homes in private collections or museums.

Looking Homeward -- Baghdad / Jerusalem / New York 1985-2005
    I started using imagery and symbolic forms from my youth in the Middle East. I use the Pomegranate (round and sensuous, a symbol of love, fertility and prosperity), The Palm Tree (date honey and growth), The Hand ( identity and protection against the evil eye), The Crown, Flowers, Water, Sun, Moon, and Calligraphy. I feel increasingly closer to my Middle Eastern roots and desire for peace in the Middle East while I live and work in the great city of New York, the center of the world of art and culture and I love it all.
