Art Trail News • December 28, 2014
About 15 years ago I was visiting an artist friend in a remote location. The closest city of 1000 people was 10 miles away. Being completely surrounded by nature it was easy to pick out things that were man-made. Tin cans on the side of the road or stray pieces of paper / wrappers were easily identified.
At that time a thought occurred to me. Do my sculptures blend in with nature? I thought I would try an experiment. Having with me two or three sculptures in the back of my pick up, I went and got one out of the back of my pick up and set it amongst the sage brush and cedars. I was curious to see if it would fit in or stick out as something that didn’t belong.
From that time forward my goal has been to sculpt works of art that fit in with a natural landscape.
This is a new piece just delivered to a gallery for pre-cast sales.
