Artist Statement

My desire after listening & working:

--A metaphorical gate that suggests you are entering a place to expand your mind, a place of inquiry and seeking

--A work that suggested communication - dialogue - interaction

--A work that emphasized strong image over words - (library is filled with words)

--Images that suggest what the mind can investigate in the world of information

--Images that suggest the whole world - whole community - whole individual

--A work that respects the high quality of craft / material / detail of building & landscape

--Timeless work - change with light and seasons

--Interactive work

-Larry Kirkland, describing his his inspirations for the work.
