Riding the rails – a metaphor for freedom from responsibility. Whenever I go anywhere I’m always looking into dumpsters and such for scraps of metal. Much of this sculpture comes from a dive into a dumpster near a local railroad construction project. I must have dug for a couple of hours picking the pieces that spoke to me. And then I held on to them for years. Like a fine wine, the components finally came together.
Patinated steel, 98″ x 12″ x 12″ on a 24″ x 24″ base.
