"City Folks"

Ryon Rich's avatar Ryon Rich

This sculpture is part of the Transit Series, a group of sculptures that address elemental aspects of the natural world. Our transient lives are interdependent on the air, water and land where we live, yet we unconsciously disregard our impact on this fragile ecosystem. Transit Series uses a balanced and harmonious synergy in an attempt to bring our awareness to the natural world on which we depend. This steel sculpture visually represents three related elements: ether, water and earth. It reflects upon the relationship of the natural elements and how we interact with them. "City Folks" is a morph of the family unit and speaks to our fragile interconnectedness with nature.
