A new sculpture project

My last exhibition was at Solomon Dubnick Gallery in the fall of 2008. The work was inspired by visits with my Norwegian cousins, in Norway, 2000 and again in 2007. In 2006, my cousin Reidar had called to say that the glaciers were melting, and that I should come. We went to the glaciers, and I followed the water, drop by drop, to streams, rivers, lakes and fiords.

The room for that exhibition was too small. I yearned for space- to make the sculpture much larger, and to include video projections of images and sounds from Norwegian glaciers and landscape.

That interest in water, where it comes from and where it’s going, has only accelerated. This new sculpture will also include a water feature, to fill it’s space with the sounds of falling water.
