Natural Forces: Three Sculptors Respond
Saint-Gaudens National Park, Cornish, NH
Evocative of wind and water, a sinuous line of resin-hardened canvas snakes along a lane of birch trees running through Saint-Gaudens National Park, the summer estate of Augustus Saint-Gaudens, the pre-eminent nineteenth century American sculptor.

The installation was made in response to the lyricism of the site and to Saint-Gaudens’ expressive use of clothing in his figurative sculptures. The sweeping gesture carries Saint-Gaudens’ use of drapery into a larger, more abstract dimension, a sculptural union of natural forces and human will.
