Sculptor & Writer on Art and Culture
Survey (there is a train a-coming)
2020, Portion of a surveyor’s rod, with a section of a gold mine rail used for ore carts, and a rusted steel point. 35.5”x14”x3.5”
This was made as a trade for a piece of sculpture with another friend. He stipulated that I would need to include an object he would send me, which was the piece of ore cart rail. The surveyors rod had been given to me by another sculptor. Their union into a cross was suggested by music – the hymn “When I survey the wondrous cross” by Issac Watts, and Eva Cassidy’s version of “People get ready”.
