This piece is an outgrowth of an idea for a bench that is made of elbows instead of feet.

Special thanks to Paul who named this sculpture Camel. Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

V.Y.L., 1988Wood, forged iron24' × 24' × 24'

My sculpture borrows from nature and refers to a practice whose originas are Slavic and Pagan. In the woods, the Pagan folk imagination sought form for the spirit in nature.

In my sculpture, V.Y.L., I have chosen branches from the forest that have grown in the form of v’s, y’s, and l’s. They have been put together in a spiral that has been marked by the peeled ends of certain branches. At the base of the structure is a circle with a bench in its center. It invites pedestrians to sit on it and remember what they have forgotten.
