Exhibition: Artists Choose Artists, 1987
Gathering Deck from a Rural Landscape, 1987
10'6" x 39' x 39'
Gathering Deck is derived from my childhood experiences around architecture of the rural midwest (cattle chutes, mining shafts and corrals), combined with a three dimensionalization of a make-believe board game. Set in an industrial and urban environment, the sculpture is a playful structure making reference to movement and the act of gathering as well as distributing materials, people and ideas.
