The shape of the ship above is based on a drawing by the British Artist,
Pauline Baynes, which she did as an illustration for the C. S. Lewis
children's novel "The Voyage of the Dawn Treader". Reading that book,
at the age of 42, in the midst of the most difficult time of my life, was
like opening the "door of the Wardrobe" for me… Having this "Decatur Sculpture Tour" chance to pay a small 'homage' to 'Jack' and 'Pauline' is a treasured experience for me.
About three years ago the office of Fort Wayne, Indiana "Mayor Tom Henry" needed to find a 'gift' to share with their new "Sister City" in China. The 'gift' they settled on was purchased from the gift shop of the "Fort Wayne Museum of Art", (the piece is from my "Learning To Dance" series) and i found a way to 'weasel' my way into the "Sister Cities Committee" presentation. Mayor Tom Henry is in the middle, i am to the left, looking like i just handed the gift to the 'leader of the group from China' myself; but of course i did not. Mayor Henry had made the presentation earlier, and Fort Wayne photographer "Samuel Hoffman" just happened to catch that certain moment.
When i heard that the Fort Wayne area art gallery "Artlink" was going to have a show with the title "Geometry" it took me quite awhile to find a thought to help me get inside. It was by far the most effort i had yet put out, but i did sell "one" panel and made about a hundred bucks... For over a months work? Oh well. "Gee-o-me-try!"
