Venturian Trio

This family of sculptures begins in river boulders. In the same way children will respond to any object in their path by building imaginative play around it, these sculptures spring forth from the boulders. They are suggestive abstractions welcoming visitorís own conceptual overlay, inviting people to see their own imagery. The project grew out of my involvement with a team project with designers from Nevue Ngan and LandCurrent rehabilitating a children's playground and park for Portland Parks and Rec in Portland OR. Commissioned by Portland Parks and Rec thru RACC.
