Artist Statement

Giesel's Garden

Foster, VA

Geisel's Garden is inspired by the artist's interpretation of the artwork, literature, and spirit of Theodor Seuss Geisel, AKA Dr. Seuss. As 2016 unfolded and came to a close, I ruminated upon how my work should respond to or address the current state of our nation and our world. I have often responded directly to issues such as division and strife within our society by creating work that is centered around themes of hope or redemption. I do not, however, wish for my art to be a continual visual response or reaction to the world around it. Art can and should transcend situations and circumstances, as it has the power not just to contribute to conversations, but to reframe them. Thus, I have endeavored to create a piece of art that is simply a celebration of beauty, creativity, whimsy, and color, as such things are universal, good, and worthy of celebration. Geisel's Garden is a reminder that in spite of whatever condition we as human family find ourselves in, there is beauty surrounding us, within us, and waiting to be created by us. Geisel's Garden is created using salvaged, recycled, and upcycled steel components and is coated with multiple layers of Dupont's legendary Imron line of urethane finishes for the utmost in durability and color retention.
