Overview

Albedo is a site specific installation for a private collector in Connecticut. The figure is a unique one-of-a kind cast bronze and measures approximately 12 feet on the hypotenuse.

Goals

Albedo is situated within large rolling fields and overlooks a valley with a river. I wanted to create a figure that would place an emphasis on the quiet, contemplative nature of the property. The title "Albedo" references a part of the ancient alchemical process of purification. The natural and landscaped surroundings are brought to life by this seemingly hovering, transformative figure.

Process

I sculpted the work in my studio and had the figure cast in bronze at Polich Tallix in Rock Tavern, NY.
