I began to use the word Curvism in 1978 to describe my art and philosophy. Curvism grew out of the landscape. The horizon, the hills and valleys, the flow of water, the shape of rocks, plants and animals, and the human figure are composed of curves. Nature is curved with few exceptions. The straight lined, angular, man-made world sharply contrasts with the natural world. Curvism believes that humans have boxed themselves into their own world, isolating themselves from the curved, spiritual world of nature.
