Wild Bill Bison, 2019

Wild Bill Bison, 12' x 7' x 6', Steel, Superior, CO.


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.
