"Back in the 60's, when I was working and travelling in Europe, [Michelangelo's depiction of God's hand reaching out to touch Adam] struck me as a memorable image. As a young boy I remember my grandmother standing in her spring garden, bending over and picking up a handful of garden dirt. The idea of hands in the garden and [the Michelangelo work] connected in my imagination and I produced the Creation series." -LINEBR-
