Reminiscent of the many waterways that meander through the open flat of north-eastern Iowa, Water Hutch is a sculptural line constructed of white cedar as a multi-site installation for repose. Conceived as a stand-alone sculpture or as part of a community of similar components arranged in series that make up a larger installation, the work can be placed in various contexts. However, it is thought that each installation be developed with a narrative specific to the host space. The work has been exhibited in multiple regional contemporary art institutions.
Jury Notes: An elegant abstraction of the many waterways that meander through the open flat of north-eastern Iowa. Ordinary materials combine to make a sculptural expression that becomes a lively part of its space. The form of this piece of furniture allows for either social interaction or solitude.
