Richard Swanson: Public Art

Red Shift Rocker
Holter Museum of Art, Helena, Montana
10.5' high x 12' x 6'
budget: $35,000

Commissioned by the Holter Museum of Art in Helena, Montana. Scissors and paper are the design tools for my "cutout" series that includes Red Shift Rocker. In a spontaneous process of folding and expanding shapes cut from paper I prospect for forms that I find exciting enough to scale up in metal. Cut loose from its moorings this sculpture literally rocks!
