John Hagen

Sculptor

My artistic inclinations are to learn from the masters whenever possible.  I admire Achipenko (1887-1964), the Ukrainian artist and sculptor, because of his willingness to depart from the traditional and experiment with different materials.  In general, I would say I prefer sculptures that are abstract and find them more challenging in their rendition than in any carving technique.  Often, the most difficult part of a sculpture is coming up with the right title – a challenge that comes from the evolving nature of a nonrepresentational form.
