I would like to thank those of you who attended my solo show in the ARTree Gallery in Newhall. We had about 150 attend the opening night. It was a lot of fun. A very successful event.
I have three shows I would like to tell you about. They were on my last e-mail, but now I wanted to give you specifics and time to put these on your calendar. I would love to see you there.
Elements will be installed at the Westfield Town Center Mall in Santa Clarita on September 16th. The opening reception is scheduled for Wednesday, September 21, 2016 from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. The Art Space is located inside next to Sisley Restaurant. The sculpture is about 12-14 feet wide in four parts. The description is below:
Elements is my version of the classical western four basic elements: earth, water, fire and air. Three of the shapes are steel and the fourth is a boulder representing earth. The metal shapes are tessellations, (interlocking & repeating shapes), that have been separated and are free standing for this work. Each fits together like a puzzle. These shapes show movement, reminiscent of the movement of wind, fire and water. A “petroglyph” of the common symbols for each element is represented on the corresponding piece. My concept expresses the inter-relatedness of the elements by using tessellating forms. Our community’s proximity to the wildlands makes The Elements come to life. With the scorched earth, El Nino & drought, firestorms & Santa Ana winds, we are all affected by the elements.
