I need your help to build and travel this work from my home in Kentucky to Massachusetts. I plan to fabricate the sculpture with a steel tubing frame sheeted with bright gold mylar laminated plywood. It will stand on 8-10 foot legs made from 4"x4" pressure treated pine. Each leg will be painted with different colors.
The idea behind the project is based on the abstraction of language. I have entitled the work "Nearly Everyone Articulates that it is Approximately Vast, Particularly on Earth".
The subject I am trying to reference is that of language, either spoken or visual. It is a common shared experience, but those experiences are vast in number, leading to unique individual interpretations.
I have been selected as one of the feature artists for the Art in the Park at Elm Park in Worcester, MA Outdoor Sculpture Exhibition. This exhibition has been juried by prominent figures in the art world based in the New England area.*
*The Art in the Park 2013 at Elm Park in Worcester, MA was juried by Anna Stothart, curatorial associate at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston; John Ventimiglia, Professor Emeritus of Sculpture and Drawing at Maine College of Art, Portland, Maine and sculptor; and Murray Dewart, sculptor and co-founder of Boston Sculptors Gallery.
Risks and challenges
There are always risks in production of artworks from fabrication to long term installations. I have been fabricating and installing art exhibitions since 1995 and have been awarded some very large projects in the public art realm as well as the gallery/museum world.
In regards to this project, I foresee no big production or installation snags, my biggest concern is material funding and travel costs. If for any reason something does come up I am confident that I will overcome it and produce a high quality artwork.
