CREOSOTE LACE

50th St Platform Light Rail Station, Phoenix, AZ

Completion scheduled for 2018

CREOSOTE LACE is the title for the work of art created for the 50th St. Platform Station. The work was conceived with the dual purposes of providing shade and celebrating a native plant which has been living in this region we call the Southwest for over seventeen thousand years. The artwork combines shadow patterns formed by the delicate Creosote leaves and minute blooms to create large abstract panels which, in turn, create shade.  The beauty and delicacy of this plant is further emphasized by the spiral shape of the curvilinear panels which float up the approach ramps to the station platform.  These spiral shaped canopies emulate the motion of the tenacious Creosote as it blows in the southwest winds, ever-rooted to the earth.  The continuous spiral shapes of the shade canopies also reference the ability of this tenacious plant to send out lateral shoots and, over long periods of time, to create concentric circles of plant families.

A PATH FOR WATER

6th & Butler Greenspace, Phoenix, AZ

Completion scheduled for 2019

Conceptually, the sculpture is the funnel through which the water is collected for the site. The sculpture was developed for the tip of the site.  The ribbon style walkway, commencing at the top of the sculpture, makes its way down the sculpture, and becomes the walkway, which ends at the fence. My approach to creating a work of art for the 6th and Butler site is to look at the entire site as the canvas for the artwork. Most importantly, the landscape development is integral to the sculptural elements. The entire site will ultimately be the work of art.
