was while living in Paris that the work of Wassily Kandinsky began to influence
his ideas and sculpture. Particularly

overlapping layers of floating hard-edged shapes.
What followed was a body of work breaking away from the Calderesque

present collections. It is here that the viewer sees a more sensuous, highly
varied group of mobiles, often colorful, that combine the engineering of a
Calder work with the humor and liveliness of artwork characteristic of
California. He presently works in his studio on Mare Island, near San
Timothy Rose passed away in 2008.
