THE ROAD AHEAD LEAVES A TRAIL BEHIND
From the artist:
The installation I have created for TURF consists of two parts. In front is a steel sculpture titled "The Road Ahead Leaves a Trail Behind." Behind and around this is an assemblage of found fuel tanks from tractors, trucks, cars, homes, and other machines not identified. The "Road Ahead Leaves a Trail Behind" is typical of my work using the image of trucks as a starting point. The idea for the assemblage of tanks grew out of two truck sculptures I made earlier using real trucks carrying found objects, "Conversion" and "Galatea." In all cases, my primary objective is to create something of visual beauty that is unique and stimulating. Once my composition is complete, I invest the viewer with the responsibility for interpretation, if interpretation is needed.
