    Concrete, steel

    7' in diameter

    Slum Ball is the most recent in a series of Fisk's works that celebrate the transformation of everyday forms. Here, he has compacted the functional and ornamental features of the distinctive Brooklyn brownstone into a concise sculpture that has been poised on raised ground near the water's edge.

    Trashbags, 2008

    Marble

    63' x 58' x 46'

    Carved out of a single block of marble, the artist references piles of trash bags commonly found on our city streets. He also wishes to recall classical sculpture, with the trash bags likened to the human figure. He is driven by the notion of a traditional sculptor's challenge, transforming a material as unyielding as marble into an object that has folds and bends like fabric. The piles of bags, six feet high, are meant to represent a paradox of everlasting disposability.
