The Haystacks in the Field series are sculptural compositions inspired by Monet’s paintings of haystacks.
As an image it holds many levels of meaning: it is a haystack, an image from the landscape; it is a house, a magical abode in the field; it is observed nature, transformed, humanized.
With the choice of steel wool as its medium it also documents the passage of time. As the stacks age, they are ever-changing and evolving in shape, color and texture.
