I am excited to begin work on a new opportunity with the Denver International Airport. I have been commissioned to create a sculptural installation in a massive land formation that will be part of the South Terminal Redevelopment Project. Currently I am just in the concept phase of this project and will begin defining specifics over the next few months. The multiple view points and perspectives for this work will make it one of my most dynamic endeavors yet as an artist, and it is most certainly the largest work I will have ever created. This drawing is simply a gestural response to the site.
Depending on the light, the Blackened Mound some times feels as if it is sinking into the earth, while at other times it is emerging.
An early morning view of the shadow line today.
Amidst the snow, I installed the elements for the shadow line in the "Plains Garden" at the Denver Botanic Gardens for the Catalyst Exhibition that opens this next month.
Ill be installing a large scale shadow line at the Denver Botanic Gardens this month. Like some of these works that I have made at various times in the past, this one will align in September on the Autumn Equinox at mid day and continue to align until the end of the exhibit. It will be located in the Plains Garden and is part of the larger "Catalyst" exhibit they are hosting.
The vegetation has grown back around my work, Avian Front, in Denver's City Park.
This summer I revisited working with some of the steel pipe I incorporated into my commissioned work in Denver's city park, Avian Front. I was exploring the transitions between the geometry of arc lengths, calibrating them to resolve at a peak. This sculpture is scaled to engage the viewer in several very dynamic perspectives. I expect to exhibit the finished work next spring in Denver at Goodwin Fine Art.
This is another recent work that Goodwin Fine Art in Denver currently has on exhibit. As with many wood works of mine, this particular black walnut plank rested in my studio for a couple years untouched, drying and developing the check that the final piece is carved from.
