"Forging Relationships" is an interview with the New Zealand sculptor Greer Twiss. The following is from the Introduction to the article: He put birds on bowler hats and Queen Victoria in a suitcase. He has made lumpy bronze bathers in bikinis, and turned a skeleton into a scholar. Sheets of galvanised iron are persuaded to take the form of an albatross, a baby or a gramophone. The sculptures of Greer Twiss are eccentric and playful. But his large and remarkably varied body of work demands serious attention. Over a career that reaches back to the 1950s, he has produced sculptures that unwinds themselves across a space; small figures teetering on the edge of a miniature stage; investigations into matters of scale, proportion, perception, interpretation, unity, the part and the whole. Throughout, Twiss has returned to the human figure, always giving it some peculiar new twist.
