Exhibition: THE SOCRATES ANNUAL, 2017
Take Me With You, 2017
Concrete, steel, water
Rendered in the tradition of monumental
figurative sculpture, a head emerges from a
pool of water. A cracked texture of desiccated
earth creeps up the figure’s neck, its eyes drawn
upward and lips open as if anticipating a sip
from the sky. Placed in sharp contrast with New
York’s East River, the work suggests the urgency
in addressing the increasing scarcity of clean
water, the most basic human need.
