250 Bypass at Rugby Avenue
This piece has been purchased
by the City of Charlottesville and will remain on permanent display.
I work mainly as a painter
and graphic designer so I categorize this sculpture as a "dabble."
This piece is rooted more in humor and levity than in "high
art." I thought of it while sitting next to an ArtInPlace sculpture
while in a hurry, stuck in traffic on a Monday morning, running
late, of course. This truly a "wouldn't it be funny if
idea that came to life.
I have never worked at
this scale or with steel and fiberglass. It has been an adventure
but an enjoyable experience, nonetheless. Isn't that what art is
suppose to be, an adventure and an enjoyable experience for everyone?
