Redwood and Copper
Using natural redwood from his California home, Johnson added overlapping copper “scales” to complement the grain and texture of the wood. He worked the wood with an assortment of tools to give the sculpture its creative qualities. The finished form of the piece suggests legs and feet walking. The simple form and unique textures of the sculpture combine both Eastern and Western sensibilities.
This sculpture is part of the Permanent Collection of the Skokie Northshore Sculpture Park.
