Art and Inquiry (2002)
Dimensions: 3′ x 4o’ x 40′
Materials: Concrete, Cast Iron, Basswood, Ash, Bubinga, Walnut, Sand, Bricks
The piece is a bunch of cows playing musical chairs. The wood carvings in the center circle are the final cow circling the cast iron chair. The hand crank music box makes a hoof clopping sound rather than music. The chair was cast in a single iron pour…photographs on the wall detail the pour.
This piece was my MFA thesis project at GSU. The piece Cough was created a few years later and is similar in kind.
