My newest project is VisionShift, a mosaic installation for HALL Arts in the Dallas Arts District. Eleven mosaic elements float across three sides of a structure on KPMG Plaza in the new complex. The Arts District has changed our collective image of downtown Dallas and VisionShift expresses the possibilities and opportunities that surround us when one is open to seeing them.
The explosive energy of the dynamic forms expresses the sense of vitality and spirit that created the Arts District and our city. Dallas is a place that bubbles with potential and citizens willing to take risks to achieve great things, both on a personal, micro level as well as a big picture, macro level. The Dallas Arts District has transformed downtown, offering new life and energy. As a Dallas native, I’m thrilled to have my artwork represented on the Texas Sculpture Walk at HALL Arts.
As always, many thanks go to Trusty Assistant Leigh Davis. Her talent and humor make every project better. Thanks also to Laticrete International for the best adhesive and grouting material. Mike Knox, Duane Rettig and Greg Freeney with Hall Arts and John McManus with Turner Construction offered great logistical assistance for my installation. And very special thanks to Patricia Meadows who chose my work for this prestigious project and supported me all along the way.
