Comentarios: Pop Art sculptor of the 1960s best known for his life-size white plaster figures, created by wrapping his models in plaster-soaked gauze. His works from the 1970s-80s continued this technique but incorporated the figures with mixed media, and placed them in "inhabited" settings. Teaching: NJ High Schs., 1957-63.
