Series

The Ponte Vedra pieces were a large part of my 2003 residency at Architectural Foam Products in Jacksonville, FL. In homage to David Smith who named his "Voltri" pieces after the Italian Town where he made them, the "Ponte Vedras" are named after the town of Ponte Vedra, Fl where I stayed during the residency.

During a studio visit by the late Walter Hopps, he asked if I had ever considered making wall dependent sculptures; I replied that I hadn't because I would have to build the wall first, due to the weight. When I was able to make permanent, rigid pieces out of Styrofoam, the wall became a viable exhibit potential.

The Ponte Vedra pieces were first exhibited in my "One Person Exhibit" at the Art Car Museum in 2005. Subsequently they were exhibited in my 2010 exhibit at Wagner-Souza Gallery in Galveston, TX. Individual pieces have been seen in the annual "Faculty Exhibit" at Lamar University.
