5 Black Ovals

1975, Artpark, Lewiston, NY.


Five black ovals supported by ten 20’ poles lean against the Niagra Gorge wall-face. Resin treated paper. The forms referenced native American travois for carrying  materials and wounded. They also provided nesting and materials for local birds. A storm destroyed the project but the experience of that loss generated the following project at Artpark – Bleed Pockets.
