The sculpture is named Trilogy, representing body, mind and spirit.
They are fabricated aluminum towers with 3 equal sides with a slanted triangular top.
They are hand-finished with layers
of color and a final application of clear commercial automotive lacquer. The unusual thing about them is that the colors change in various light. At night
with solar spot lights, they appear to glow.
Project was designed to complement a property that has 360 views of mountains north of Santa Fe, NM. Trilogy represent body|mind|spirit - with its three sides. This art was created for this family and their lovely residence.
Fabricator, Eddie Crist, cut and welded the aluminum panels which were then assembled
to create each tower. Many layers of paint were applied using scumbling techniques....and a final 3 coats of clear auto finis were applied.
Towers are anchored into the ground with concrete. Solar uplighting creates mesmerizing transparencies at night.
Ridgeway depicts movement in her work, sometimes kinetic and full of emotion, sometimes bold and masterful, sometimes languid and tentative. She sees herself as the channel, the work coming it comes through her but it is not hers. It goes out into the world – it has a life of its own.

[ 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.
