Fisher Stolz – Trinity: 2019 Weinberg Competition Winner


Stainless Steel

The origin of the idea behind “Trinity” began with the exploration of a Celtic clover knot. Although he refers to the form as Celtic, it has been used in many cultures and generally references interconnectedness.
Contoured planes are emphasized in the sculpture, as is the twisting option, to describe dynamic movement. A series of rays originate at the center of the base and project through and out of the clover knot in a display of energy from the core. Associations range from spiritual to nuclear. The goal is for the viewer to be able to see this clover knot elevated in space. Many of the works by Professor Stolz have a
strong symmetry, but in this case, the elements are angled in an asymmetrical way. This angle makes the clover knot more apparent from a viewer’s perspective.

Fisher Stolz is an active member of the Illinois sculpture community. He has exhibited internationally and is the Sculpture Area Head at Bradley University in Peoria, IL.
