Artist Statement Submitted 2018

We find the process of collaboration energizing, with individuals working together to push the range of art possibilities.

Our strength lies in our ability to create a vision that is also a solution. We are influenced by a site’s characteristics, and our designs can be traced to the physical, sociological, and often, historical parameters of a sites. At the same time, we strive to create work that ensures a variety of poetic experiences. Thus as we research a site, we look for a theme: Something about a place that inspires and directs our design; an inherent truth that lends itself to visual metaphor.

We believe that success of our public art projects begins with the creation of works of strong aesthetic designs that engage the viewer. Then, once engaged, the viewer discovers other layers of meaning and poetry within the work, providing the participant with a multifaceted and poignant experience.
