Take Nagare [Waterfall]
2009
96 x 132 x 40
Bronze w/Patina

Inspired by my college studies, Chitose No Saka, Sashi Kuru Nami and Take Nagare are three patinated cast bronze works in a series of seven bronzes. This series seeks to unite observed nature with abstract design in an effort to achieve the meditative and transcendent power of the landscapes of Asian watercolor painting and ink drawing. As a relief composed of multiple sections, Take Nagare can be adapted to fit a multitude of wall dimensions. This work was a finalist for the wall relief commission for the new Walter E. Washington Convention Center, Washington, DC, co-curated by Vivienne Lassman and Joel Strauss Consulting. The commission was awarded to a Washington, DC-based artist.
