That Darned Sweater. Kathleen C Cooper. December 2015.

Kevin’s experientially distressed wool sweater, felted and repaired with mixed metal darning and knitted wire patchwork.   Hand-made steel hanging structure. Found & repurposed mirror and salvaged hanging wire, knitted brass wire hanger cover. Approximately 30” vertical by 28” horizontal, 8” deep.

Homage to Richard Serra

Of Richard Serra’s massive steel sculptures, I’ve visited  Toqued Ellipses at the DIA in Beacon, NY, The Matter of Time at the fabulous Guggenheim in Bilbao, Spain and Five Plates, Two Poles in Washington DC at the National Gallery of Art.

My personal favorites are the immense curved structures in and through which a visitor can walk, thus becoming a part of the installation.

Here is my tiny sculpture (8 x 9 x 8 cm).  (A bit of whimsy – the little people in and around the sculpture – we are always getting mail for the misspelled Copper Family.)
