Warm greetings! I hope this finds you well. Thank you for receiving my email. I have some exciting news to share.
Atrium Installation of New Public Artwork (January 2023 - January 2024) Will to Meaning, 2023, 40’ x 35’ x 5’, Acrylic on Tyvek® with grommets
As part of the larger exhibition, Rochester Art Center commissioned a large-scale public artwork for its 50’ atrium. This work is an extension of the exhibit, celebrating the connection of art and well-being as well as responding to the physicality of architecture, materiality, and gestural, emotive mark-making. The installation is inspired by Viktor Frankl’s theory that the search for life’s meaning is the central human motivational force.
