Shag Pools
2015

« previous | 3 of 36 | next »

"Shag Pools" is a subtle piece that is integrated into the landscape and is meant to be discovered unexpectedly. With elements of design and nostalgia, the intention is to bring the feeling of the interior into the open field, combining my suburban upbringing from the 1970’s with the natural, outdoor surroundings at Franconia Sculpture Park. This piece is elegant, reflective, and beautiful while also conveying humor with its nod towards suburbia.

Dimensions:
Three forms spanning 2,500 square feet. Brown/Blue: 13x19' with a 3' band of rock; White/Brown: 17x17' with a 3' band of rock; Pink/Blue: 20x17' with a 3' band of rock

Two yards of pink quartz, 1 1/2 yards of dodge white rock, one yard cocoa rock; 12 tons of recycled glass.
