Artist Statement Submitted 2015

Within the realm of public art, we find the process of collaboration an energizing one. Working together, we push the breadth and range of art possibilities. We are continually influenced by a site’s characteristics and its function and we work to maintain a relationship to the surrounding environment.

While we are influenced by a site’s characteristics, and our designs can be traced to a site’s parameter, at the same time we also strive to create works that ensures a variety of poetic experiences with layers of meaning. And as we carry out our research, we look for a theme, something about a place that both inspires and directs our design; an inherent truth that lends itself to becoming visual metaphor.

The success of our projects begins with strong aesthetic design that engages an audience. Once engaged, the viewer discovers other layers of meaning within the work, providing the participant with a multifaceted and meaningful experience.
