Evan Lewis – Inland Sea Fowl
Stainless Steel and Aluminum
“Inland Sea Fowl” showcases the artist’s interest in kinetic, wind-powered, large-scale outdoor sculpture. The piece functions like a weather vane, responding to wind direction and also has a rocking up and down movement. These actions give the piece an ever-changing dynamic quality. Lewis says his work is inspired by organic, plant-like forms, the rugged California mountains where he grew up and engineered forms such as bridges and radio towers. He describes this sculpture as “an imagined creature from a time long ago or possibly long into the future”.
