I see balance as the tension between order and chaos, between motion and stillness. I want to give a physical presence to the effect of gravity and balance on form — like Richard Serra’s massive steel sculptures. But at the same time I want to use lightness and whimsy to give my work a sense of life, an apparent effortlessness — like Alexander Calder’s mobiles. Through this interplay of mass and weightlessness, I hope to find an inherent sense of gesture, dance, and lyricism within a static form. (http://www.willclift.com/about.htm).
