This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in New Britain, Connecticut, he is known primarily for his assemblages in which he uses a variety of incongruous objects such as parts of weathered barn doors, antique dolls' heads, old leather, marbles, and ping-pong balls. He became a professor of sculpture at Dartmouth College in New Hampshire.

He is also a watercolorist and sculptor who did many works relating to medieval themes of Knights, Death, and the Devil starting with the Orpheus legend, a theme he further explored through the writing of his own poetry.

After serving in the United States Navy, he attended Central Connecticut Teachers College and the Vesper George School of Art in Boston. In 1953, he had a Fulbright grant to paint in Italy, and from 1956 to 1959, he worked with Josef Albers, geometric abstractionist, at Yale University where he earned both his BFA and MFA.
