Commissioned through Art Consulting Services for Rideout Cancer Center in Marysville, CA. and installed on January 5th, 2013. This artwork consists of three 7-foot globe-shaped mobiles resembling almond trees in full flower. View a slideshow of images from design to installation here.
Above, “Faceted Pendants” is being installed in Kaiser Permanente’s front entry space at their new location in Loveland, Colorado. Created from lightly starched silk, stainless steel wire, and steel rod, this artwork makes use of repetition to amplify patterns in nature. More photos can be seen on my Aerial Sculpture page.
This grouping of 11 spinner mobiles with hand dyed silk aspen leaves was commissioned for the Lewis Court Senior Living Apartments in Golden, Colorado. The 50-unit complex is a low income housing project funded by the Colorado Housing & Finance Authority. Rhonda Douglas (Douglas Art Consulting) utilized the work of many Colorado artists for the entry and common area spaces.
Here’s a short video I created for those who’d like a glimpse of how my mobiles move. The mobile is connected in a way that makes each “branch” repel those adjacent to it. This gives more of an interconnected response of motion, and interferes with the simple circular swirl of typical mobiles.
I’m introducing a fourth option to the growing collection of hand dyed “Dappled Leaf” mobiles: Plum-Emerald-Blue. This one will appeal to those who like jewel tones . . .
