KNOT #13D 180 x 150 x 132 in / 456 x 381 x 336 cm / Stainless Steel / 2014 Commissioned by: DUCO Handelsstraat 19, 8630 Veurne, Belgium
This sculpture was chosen from a smaller version by the site architect as my art relates to it's surroundings and environment by echoing the forces of nature in a visual manner that is uniquely my own, yet reminiscent of everything that we see in the natural world - bridging the divide between nature and structure, space and form.
The Architect, Damiaan Vanhoutte, Belgium, chose the sculpture. ZFA Structural Engineers, San Francisco, did the structural engineering based on my 1/12 scale steel model. The DUCO production manager, Rik Muylle, found a European Fabricator and oversaw the fabrication and installation of the sculpture.
The sculpture was fabricated of 1 inch thick stainless steel plate which was sanded
smooth, sandblasted, and then surface highlighted.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
