HOMETOWN:

Hattiesburg, Mississippi

FROM THE ARTIST:

"I have always believed that public sculpture should be both lyrical and serious. Ideally, it should offer hope and provide something for the viewer's imagination to play with. Art for me has to be fun. I feel that "Wind Harp" is an aesthetically pleasing form to admire yet it also represents a musical instrument. Although it makes no sound, one can imagine the tunes that could be played on it."

HOMETOWN:

Alfred Station, New York

FROM THE ARTIST:

"Sky Keeper is about relationships; the comparisons that can be made between species, family members, groupings and gatherings. Also, I enjoy vertical forms and the ways the ends can be developed. I enjoy working with earthen materials and the challenges of solidity and weight that come from granite, solid steel, cast glass and solid cast bronze. Further, I want to tell stories and comment on my collective life experience and perception of a collective consciousness."
