WHAT series poems and sculptures by Ron and Miriam Pederson

2012 ArtPrize Entry
Add to Collection

This is a grouping of four sculptures and four poems, produced collaboratively. The photos accurately convey the sculpture; the poems are printed on freestanding steel panels that are displayed as spatial co-equals with the sculpture, so that viewers may read the poems while standing far enough back to see the sculptures. Because all eight elements of the grouping are free-standing, the display format can conform to the size and shape of the available space, ranging from aligning them in curved or straight rows to rectangular or square or biomorphic groupings. Dimensions given assume a rectangular format. Though indoor space is preferred, the poetry panels and sculptures are impervious to weather and can be displayed out-of-doors or under a porch enclosure.
