Commissions and Site-Specific Installations
The images in this folder show that I am responsive to individual sites, that I work on a scale from gallery to installations and public commissions; and, that I work in a variety of materials such as cast bronze, and fabrications in steel, aluminum and mixed media.
Site-specific installations and commissions offer many challenges which I find stimulating and thought provoking. How can a sculpture celebrate the environment? My response was Ball of Leaves my first public art commission in 1995 for the corporate headquarters of Salomon, Inc., at the now former 7 World Trade Center, New York, NY, USA.
As a mother, I have very much enjoyed making interactive sculptures for children and their families, please refer to Haystacks in the Field, Nos. 1 and 2; Dorothy Was Here; Nesting Ground: Seven to be Found; and, Cymbal-Lene.
I have long been fascinated with the elegance and lyricism of water imagery and have sought to realize its magical and tranquil qualities in sculpture, please refer to my floating site-specific installation, Dragonflies for the Adkins Arboretum in Ridgely, MD, USA.
I believe my portfolio shows that I bring a respect and sensitivity to each project as each project is unique.
What do you want to say and how will you say it? With public sites the possibilities to stretch and develop your creative mind are endless, a challenge to both your imagination and expertise.
Sculpture brings the primacy of touch into our world of computer and television screens.
