Upon arrival to Buffalo Creek Art Center, I was immediately struck by the vastness of space and sky. There was room to play joyously with scale at a new level. This 23' sculpture was created as a site specific work to integrate not only with the formal elements of the environment but also the natural forces that affect the space. The supporting pipe was bent to mirror the lines created by the Job's Peak and job's sister the two mountains and saddle that are situated directly behind the piece. Like clockwork every day, late In the afternoon, strong winds come trailing down this saddle ridge. It was quite literally inspiring. I wanted to tap into that energy and created this piece to ride these winds.
