Wild Bill Bison, Fabricated steel. Sited at the Element Hotel, Superior, CO, 2019.
The title gives a nod to Buffalo Bill Cody and his Wild West Show. One of Cody's final wishes was to be buried on Lookout Mountain above Denver.
The Bison is a recurring motif in the arts, as old as the prehistoric cave paintings of Lascaux, France. This iconic animal symbolizes bravery, strength, and respect.
This steel plate version is a geometric abstraction, referencing the language of modernist sculpture.
