Sculptural Fingers • In the Woods

When I first created these sculptures in collage, I loaded in my little red grocery wagon and transported them around Providence setting them up in various urban locations and taking photographs. They are a great installation piece with a comic twist. After David and I cleaned them up and repainted them we decided to do the same in a rural, woodland setting. Here is a selection of the photographs....

Nestled in a bed of ferns....

On the sandy flats in a meandering stream......

And always, time to be a little goofy.....

The mosquitos ended the exploration! We will set them up in a final location in our sculpture glade. The above sites are a little too remote and I think the fingers might disappear.

  1. That is kind of spooky a hand coming from underneath the ground. Photos look great and love the size of the fingers.

    1. No doubt about it being spooky. When I was in collage I had them coming down from the ceiling in my living room. That was also a spooky feeling- sitting under this enormous hand.
