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.
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.
