John Hock - Table Sculpture: Can't Recall a Time

John Hock – Table Sculpture: Can’t Recall a Time

Welded Steel

The artist says that his sculpture is a metaphysical statement. He calls sculptures at their best akin to poetry and music. This piece was inspired by the sculpture of Constantine Brancusi, whose sculptures integrated object and base. One view of this piece can remind one of Brancusi’s “Bird in Space”. The sculpture, the largest in the Sculpture Park, took several months of heavy work to complete. The base alone weight 15,000 pounds.
