His work has the for me the same stillness and presence of the Ionic period of Greek sculpture. I was thinking about this the other day in Berlin standing in front of such works Consequently I was unable to see his recent show, other than the photos , but still I could see the way in which he makes all these transitions in weight ,thickness and the contours weave as one. No one, but Hide has built towers, or monolith , as I might call them, in recent history that have the presence I see in the Classics and Egyptian sculpture. He is indeed one of a kind with remarkable abilities.
Congratulations on your exhibition.
