Artwork description:

Chenango refers to the river that runs through Binghamton, N.Y., where I grew up. I could have titled this piece Susquehanna, which also runs through Binghamton but I liked the sound of Chenango better. The channel that meanders through this Cedar Plank is referential. It is a slice of Geography although not specific.

All of my sculptures are made out of wood (Cedar). They are intended to be place in an interior environment only. My sculptures are photographed both inside & outside. The interior shots are intended to give the viewer a sense of what my work would look like in an interior setting. The exterior shots were important to give the viewer a more accurate sense of color and texture without distracting shadows and very good natural light.

I have always had an affinity for creating with wood. Over the years I've restored 10 properties. Several were historic. One is listed on the National Registry of Historic Structures. I've also built wooden boats. My career was dedicated to teaching studio art at three different colleges over a period of 44 years. I've exhibited in NYC, Washington D.C., Philadelphia, Florence Italy, Liverpool England, and numerous museums and galleries throughout the US. Creating challenging provocative work has been a life long goal. I consider myself a process artist. My that I mean... I enjoy making the work. After that I basically leave it in the hands of the gods.

Chenango is finished with three coats of steel impregnated paint, then sprayed with an activator... magically turning the surface in to a completely convincing appearance of rusted steel.

The base of the sculpture fits easily into the 18" slotted base. The base is shipped separately.

Materials used:

cedar & faux steel paint
