Description

"While serving his Peace Corp time in India, Shapiro saw many Indian art works, and has said that 'India gave me the sense of … the possibility of being an artist.” In India “Art was pervasive and integral to the society,' and he has said that 'the struggle in my work to find a structure that reflects real psychological states may well use Indian sculpture as a model.'

...

His later works can have the appearance of flying, falling, being impossibly suspended in space, and/or defying gravity. He has said about this shift in his work that he "wanted to make work that stood on its own, and wasn’t limited by architecture and by the ground and the wall and right angles.”
