HASTINGS-ON-HUDSON, N.Y. -- A sculpture by Bill Logan was recently installed in front of the Hastings-on-Hudson Library.
Logan will have an opening reception Sunday from 4-6 p.m., at Village Hall, 7 Maple Ave. It is a joint opening with a Susan Richman photography exhibition.
In regard to his art, Logan said, "The chosen name for the sculpture is 'Fork,' which derives from the word 'bifurcate,' which means to split into two branches. The sculpture, emerging from the ground, is an embodiment of this pervasive process in nature which is also exemplified by the diverging paths defining the site. Thin annealed 3/16 stainless steel, about the thickness of a postcard, was chosen for its ability to pick up the colors from the surrounding environment."
"The dimpled texture breaks up the surfaces and blends the reflected colors. The riveted zipper seams allow flat sheets of stainless steel to take on complex compound curves creating an organic surface. The internal space between the thin metal sheets is filled with expanding foam which bulges the surface slightly, adding to the feeling of an internal organic life. My goal with this sculpture was to create a living form, moving with the viewer and molded by light and color," he added.
