“If a man has an apartment stacked to the ceiling with newspapers we call him crazy. If a woman has a trailer house full of cats we call her nuts. But when people pathologically hoard so much cash that they impoverish the entire nation, we put them on the cover of Fortune magazine and pretend that they are role models.”

 Art News: FrogDaddy and the Abstract Stone Sculpture

Art

One morning as I drove down the beautiful RT. 121 in Saxtons River, Vermont. I came upon this stone sculpture in the front yard of a home just outside the center of town.

Somehow, this piece of stone just 'hit me' with it's stunning abstract form. What intriqued me was the soft, yet definite edges of the stone. The forms were so well blended and its alien-like shape reminded me so much of alienlove.com .... it was just perfect!

I pulled into the driveway and decided to knock at the door to see if the owners would allow me to photograph this fantastic piece of art. They were so gracious and welcomed to thier home and allowed me to photograph and publish this piece. Thank you folks.

A thought about abstract art .. you know, people have to understand, that when looking at abstract art, they are looking at objects, as realistic in intent, as those commonly acepted as such. If you can not see what the artists purpose or intent was ... then it is the viewer who was weak.

What is of great interest to me is that, as a viewer, I could not see any 'struggle' in this stone. Stone sculptures often seem to be wanting to 'break out' of thier boundries and set themselves free. I saw a sculpture that had been masterfully controlled, creating a coherent and forceful expression in stone.

But then perhaps this is the role of the abstract artist, to create order and expression out of a chaos. A role that nature often takes on and handles superbly.
