The sculpture is a site-specific piece commissioned for the parking structure located at the eastern most end of Sarasota, Florida’s Main Street. It is a wall hung, multi-element sculpture fabricated from aluminum plate and powder-coated.
Re-imagining the feeling of arrival, the expectation and anticipation of coming to Sarasota in the 1920′s, The Passengers sculpture becomes a visual reminder of the former use of the site as the Atlantic Seaboard Railway Depot. The elements of the piece create a larger than life vignette that draws on the new building’s distinctive architectural features adding dimension and reality to the sculpture.
The sculpture was approved by the City of Sarasota’s Public Art Committee February 2012 and installed April 2012.
The newest giclée was released December 2012. The edition is small at 50 prints on canvas or paper. A few artist proofs are available.
Mangrove islands are full of creatures. Entwined in the roots and branches live an array of birds, reptiles and shell fish that fascinated me and lured me back to my easel to capture this scene.
