Just completed in time for the opening reception- 9′ METAL bEAR SCULPTURE made from lucky horse shoes and found objects, welded and left in rust. His name became Ted in the last minuets of install so he could have a tag at the show. He is intended for exterior display and can (by clients choice) hold a lantern (electric) and or a mailbox. Then again he can just be enjoyed as a sculpture with no lantern and no mailbox- straight personality.
Albany Center Gallery is excited to partner with The Times Union for our satellite exhibit to take place at the Times Union Center during The Great Northeast Home Show.
The Opening Reception is February 8, 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Rabindranath’s writings – Book: Final Poems
Were translated into English by Wendy Barker & Saranindrath Tagore.
I found this so stimulating to think on-
The first intimation of this profound philosophical change in Rabindranath’s thinking can be traced to On My Birthday 20; here, he creates a remarkable image of language in process of losing its power of signification and sharply criticizes the view that language can uncover the nature of Being:
Today I imagine the words of countless
Languages to be suddenly fetterless-
After long incarceration
In the fortress of grammar, suddenly up in rebellion.
Maddened by stamp-stamping
Of unmitigated regimented drilling.
They have jumped the constrains of sentence
To seek free expression in a world rid of intelligence,
Snapping the chains of sense in sarcasm
And ridicule of literary decorum.
Currently there are newly 12 finished pieces of sculpture using recycled metal.
The largest one as of now is 3 foot.
I have many more drawings & ideas to solidify.
I have started collecting parts to expand the langue and dialog.
I spent a week taking the sculpture to different sites and photographing them.
The backgrounds I put them in were very interesting.
The process was an enhancement of my photographic skills and I got to look at the work from a new perspective. I have really enjoyed the focus and time spent.
The cast iron posts are from a demo in Albany. It has been told to me they are from the 1800′s.
They are now re-worked and erected as a pergola at a home over looking Lake George NY.
The wood slats for top will be installed in the spring.
