I made this as a stone carving first, then took a mold from that to create the bronzes. While carving one day I had glanced over at a small narrow piece of limestone and saw in it the possibilities for this simple abstract bassist. When I started the carving I realized my concept was too flat and uninteresting when looked at from the sides, so I angled a few planes, most importantly the neck of the bass. That and the narrow slot in the middle made it more “three dimensional” and interesting. It reminds me of modern architecture. Even though it's really a bassist, I couldn't resist the word play for the title.
