Bob Rivera - Dragon Tree of Maintenance

Bob Rivera – Dragon Tree of Maintenance

Redwood, Painted Steel and Aluminum

Brooklyn sculptor, Bob Rivera has created a work that suggests both the shape and size of a large dragon. His creature defends the space it inhabits, playfully balancing its different elements and suggesting imminent movement. This collage-like sculpture entices us with its abstract yet light-hearted use of color, line, shape and space and its use of recognizable “tools” provides a sense of “real world” familiarity.

This sculpture has been donated to the Skokie Northshore Sculpture Park by the artist and is now part of the Park’s permanent collection.
