BEGGAR
(Part of The Hunger Series)


I created these sculptures between 1975 and 1985. My desire to create images of hunger came from living in India, a country I love, from 1962-4. A woman’s face in the crowd at a train station, holding her shawl over her face, and looking with penetrating eyes has stayed with me. A mother trying to nurse her child, men barely able to move, begging to be seen and cared for, children standing around everywhere with large bellies, a man, a fragment of a life with his child, were among the countless images with which I identify. Not a day passes in our beautiful Finger Lakes that these people do not walk with me in some way along my journey.
