Swing For Lovers, 2005-06
Hemlock, Port Orford Cedar, nylon rope
Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Maine. A redefinition of the swing seen in romantic landscape art and the commonplace marital swing of lawns, gardens and porches. Designed for two, the couple sits back to back. As one pushes off, eyeing the ground, the effort supports their partner gazing upwards toward the sky.
