“Gone to Seed” is the sculpture finished and shown for the month of June. This sculpture is made of re-thought metal finished with translucent flip flop color (that dosnt show well in photos) and clear. It opened at a show with John Van Alstine, Gyula Varosy, David Bender, Noah Savett, called “Metal Works” put on by: Jessica Golden. The opening reception was outstanding and the sculpture sold. Detail picture shown below-
A little about the sculpture- The artist says she woke one
morning in may and looked across the sculpture field to see dandelions all in seed sparkling
in the harsh morning sun. In the moment she remembered the 3 large buckets of
bolts that had been acquired, thinking that would make the perfect material for
an extra large sculpture construction. She worked feverishly to the finishing
stage at which point she felt translucent flip flop color and clear coat would
truly capture the original morning motivation.
