Painted stainless steel screen
To me this is a place full of people. I want to celebrate the generations
of extended families and friends that have shared these hallowed grounds
for over 150 years.
These "figures" are a bit humorous as they hover above the ground,
as if in another dimension, almost otherworldly. Moving about in tandem
with the wind, their benign nature compels the viewer to render them harmless,
a gentle reminder of many communities represented in this special place.
I chose these particular trees for their slender, life-size girth and
random placement near an extended family plot, where several paths cross.
It seems as if this group of figures almost flies above the fray, looking
down at us as we look up at them.
