This project consisted of two powder coated kinetic steel dragon sculptures. The dimensions are 12' x 4' x 12' & 9' x 3' x 9' and the sculptures have a signature splatter paint finish.
The larger than life size sculptures were chosen to be colorful and whimsical to bring a joyful iconic presence to the company campus.
The clients discovered my sculpture at an art fair, and we entered into a planning phase via email that led to the installation of the Dragons two months later.
I finished the sculpture with my signature splatter paint finish to emphasize the creative use of paint. It was rewarding when the dragons were named Stirstix and Pigment by the clients, lending a personalized sculptural presence to the company's culture.

[ 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.
