Ch-ch-changes.

A couple pieces of news.

First, after 25 years together, I am no longer represented by the National Sculptors’ Guild and Columbine Gallery.

Second, new developers have bought the building my shop was in. So, almost 4 years to the day since I moved in, (much like Elvis) I’ve exited the building.

Here it was in 2014, ready to get to work:

Interwoven: Installed!

Interwoven – INSTALLED!

Ran down to Little Rock on Sunday/Monday with Interwoven in tow. Stayed with new friends Mike and Marty, then got up Tuesday morning and bolted it down to the base. As usual, the City Parks crew were a huge help, and have become some of the best art handlers/installers in the country. I love the bridge as a backdrop: the piece was at least partially inspired by the multiple bridges across the Arkansas river, and their riveted, industrial aura.

Interwoven is finished
Interwoven: Done!

After five long months of work through the winter, Interwoven is finally done. Very happy little metal monkey over here. So pleased, in fact, that I composed a wee poem for the occasion:

Interwoven
Unseen fabric
Warp of Time
Weft of Space
The tapestry of connection
Between me and everything
Nexus
Node to node
Emergent consciousness
Synapse
And Synecdoche 

Hydrogen becoming
Humanity
A Universe evolving
Eyes
with which to see
Itself

Below are some additional images documenting the final stages of the assembly:
