Sky/Sea Sculpture Installation

This past January and February found me in Snowmass, Colorado. I was selected for a 2007 Artist Residency at the Anderson Ranch Arts Center.
This residency was a gift of time. Left to my own devices, I worked nonstop. I listened to the snow fall at three a.m. You get the picture. It was heaven.
I had the time to question my work and the direction it was headed. It was during this winter residency that I purposefully took a decisive turn in the
road from which I have been traveling. My sense is that this work is just the tip of the iceburg.

Sky/Sea is as pure as the earth’s elements of water and air. This new work is about a place near the sea where last summer I found a sense of self and inner calm. Each day, the horizon unceremoniously presented a steady stream of colorful nuances and mesmerizing possibilities. I gathered the images of the water and sun’s rays and have carried them with me until  now.
