Artist Statement

We find the process of collaboration energizing, with individuals working together to push the range of art possibilities. Having worked on a variety of projects ranging from freestanding sculpture to sculptural environments, we know the importance of working with all constituents and creating a project that offers the community a meaningful work of art. We are influenced by a site’s characteristics, and our designs can be traced to the physical, sociological, and historical parameters of a site. Simultaneously we strive to create work that ensures a variety of poetic experiences, and as we research a site, we look for a theme: Something about a place that directs our design through an inherent notion that lends itself to metaphor. The success of our public art projects begins with the creation of works of strong aesthetic designs that engage the viewer. Once engaged, the viewer discovers other layers of meaning, providing the participant with a multifaceted and poignant experience.
