Carrier Torso shows the central section of an aircraft carrier, suggesting a central stack of the Second World War US ship Enterprise, known, like its nuclear powered successor, as the Big E. The title of the work and the stripping away of detail suggests a comparison of the massive, yet vulnerable ship to the nude statues from the classical world, surviving only as fragments.

Making the same comparison as the Carrier Torso, Carrier Stack is an abstract version of the stack, or funnel, of the USS Enterprise, a carrier active in World War II.
