My sculpture “Harvest” was selected for the 2012–2013 El Paseo Invitational Sculpture Exhibit, a two-year international competition in Palm Desert, California. The 8” tall bronze maquette is currently being cast as a bronze sculpture 2 meters’ tall. The sculpture will be installed on November 5th.
“Harvest” was inspired by memories of my years working in the fields as a child. The form is influenced by memories of the angular structure of machinery, and the curves of natural world. The figure leans forward in the arduous effort of picking and carrying the abundance of the fields, under the relentless but life-sustaining sun.
The concept of farm work provides a wonderful metaphor for life; planting seeds, nurturing a crop, enduring unexpected hardship, reaping what we sow, and appreciating the rewards of honest work.
