THE ART OF CONCRETE
Inspired by nature and our journey in figurative form.
Concrete designed to have a personal connection to the viewer.
September 2020 installation
333 Halstead Ave Chicago IL, USA
Chicago Sculpture Exhibit 2020-2021
This nearly twelve foot, 750lb concrete sculpture sits on the corner of Halstead and VanBuren in Greektown Chicago. With the Willis Tower and West Loop skyscrapers in the back ground. this contemporary piece takes us back in time when carving figures in stone was common. He strikes a casual unassuming pose but on his head as if the world doesn’t matter. Our upside down world is a place to invert our thoughts as we learn to adapt to our changing times.

THE HELPING HAND
Palmer Square Chicago, IL USA
Public Sculpture 9' x 11' x 7'
Permanent installation in Palmer Square Park, Chicago IL, USA. This whimsical oversized hand and insect was designed for the City of Chicago Park District’s Tree Project in 2018. As a member of the Chicago Sculpture International group I was invited to sculpt a tree in the program highlighting a diseased Emerald Ash. The tree was infested with the Emerald Ash Borer larvae many years ago, died and was trimmed down to it's main trunk at 20ft.
The concrete sculpture consists of an oversized, grasping hand (11 foot long) emerging from the ground at the base of the dying tree. Just above the hand is the adult emerald ash borer also sculpted using concrete & copper.
