We lived in Loveland, Colorado for over 10 years in the 90's. With a lake in the center of town, the Canadian geese were a constant visual as well as the western view of mountain range of the Rocky Mountain National Park. I did a series of wire geese as a commission while I lived there for the interior of a beautiful home on the front range. Since then, I have been fascinated by the shapes and movement. Last year, I was asked to participate in a "bird" show in Dallas, and I tried to recreate the wire geese, this time out of silver wire.
In an attempt to get connected to more public art possibilities, I began working with laser cut aluminum. For this work, I recreated the wire geese into a larger 4 ft format. They are now being exhibited in the main lobby of the John Brown University art department, and are lit from by two spots, giving the multiple shadows, which adds to the work.
