A beacon of knowledge …
Artist: Don Rambadt
Location: Fallbrook Library
This sculpture began as an exercise in simplicity. The challenge I presented myself was to represent an owl using as few pieces of metal as possible, while still creating a sense of balance and tension throughout the entire sculpture. My hope was that by combining the recognizable image of the Owl, with the monumental scale of the work, I could encourage the viewer to spend some time exploring the more subtle, abstract compositions that reveal themselves as one moves around the piece. Much as the title or cover of a book invites the reader to open themselves to the endless possibilities presented within.
