Haystacks in the Field, No. 1
2000 and 2006
(1): 84 x 100 x 100; (2): 60 x 71 x 71
Steel Mesh

A site-specific installation on 1/2 acre site inspired by Monet's paintings of haystacks. Commissioned in 2000 by the James A. Michener Art Museum, Doylestown, PA, with funding for installation provided by The Leeway Foundation, Philadelphia, PA; and re-sited for Sculpture New Hope: Outdoors 2006-07 by New Hope Arts, Inc., New Hope, PA. As an image it bears many levels of meaning. It is a haystack, an image from the landscape. It is a house, a magical abode in the field. It is observed nature, transformed, humanized. The image featured is Day 60 at the Michener Museum. With the choice of steel wool as its medium, the haystacks also document the passage of time.
