A Modern Stone Wall
This stone wall is on display at Real Art Ways through March 20, 2011. The artist's statement explains that in his stonewalls, minimalism, conceptualism and environmental art all find their common ground.
He says that he is interested in the New England stonewall as a metaphor; a metaphor for the conquest of the wild . . . a metaphor for our democracy which was founded on labor, migration, individual determinaton, and communal vision . . . a metaphor for a sense of place; a metaphor for New England itself.
The artist? I expected a nice traditional New England name like Caleb Loring or Jebidiah Applethwaite.
