"The theme of my work focuses on the individual and the balance between thought, action and existence – a basic human experience. Each figure exhibits a specific relationship to its environment, and the viewer’s own reflection and participation endows the figure with purpose and meaning. The beginning and end of each balancing act is unseen, and discontinuous events are fused by spatial structure into a single new reality." – Goltz
