    Exhibition: THE SOCRATES ANNUAL, 2017

    Take Me With You, 2017

    Concrete, steel, water
    10.5 x 12 x 12 feet
    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.
