Seed Returns

I picked Seed up the other day from the CityArt Walking Sculpture Tour in Mankato, MN.  It was on exhibit there for one year and took home Best in Show.  Nice to have it back home again.

It reminds me of a short meditation I wrote a while back which I don’t believe I’ve shared here yet.  It’s especially relevant to this sculpture.

“When I look at a natural creation, be it a bone, shell or tree, I am struck by the anomalies and variations found in an object that appears symmetrical at first glance.  The perfection that life aspires to is forced to adapt into a more irregular and complex form when it encounters an indifferent environment.  Yet the ideal still lies just below the surface.  It is a whisper only our mind can hear.  My sculpture is inspired by this conflict between an ideal state and an imperfect reality.  In it can be found both the chaos of growth and the geometry of perfection.”
