Overview

Sails 2, 3, and 4 each measure 60”x24”x24” reside in the Sculpture Garden at the Governor’s Residence in Hartford, CT along with the works of fifteen other living sculptors from Connecticut.

Goals

The goal of the project was to create mired stainless steel forms that capture the billowing motions of sails in the wind.

Process

Collaboration took place between the curator of the sculpture garden, fabricator, and myself. We shared ideas on the natural beauty of the setting and the ways in which Sails 2, 3, and 4 would enhance it.
