sculpture based on house forms is a natural approach to art for me.
Although I have never worked as an architect, my training in the profession
defines the way that I structure knowledge and perceive the world. Producing
art based on architecture combines a love of materials with my knowledge
of structural engineering, anthropology, and art.
36" x 48" x 20"
motif for the sculpture is the form of the Robie House of Frank Lloyd
The emphasis for this sculpture is engineering structure. The cantilever
of the roof is one third of the span, this being the most efficient.
The columns and main roof beams form a portal frame.
