Project Description


By Ben Pierce Cape Girardeau – MO

Skyward is inspired by the ‘natural world’ and resembles the growth of a young sprout uncurling and reaching towards the sun.  There is also influence from the ‘hu-man-made’ world of architecture- using a square form and modern material. “I grew up in a rural area and spent many days playing in wooded areas near my house. It was like stepping into another world in contrast to the paved roads and square build-ings of the world we have created. Everything was irregular and curvy in nature. There is something so fundamental and yet powerful about the natural world- and these are the concepts I hope to instill into my work and hope that the viewer feels that.”
