Standing Arch

Kenneth Thompson

Adrian, Mich.

Medium: Cast Concrete, Steel
Dimensions: 3' x 7' x 11'

I have long felt that profound art contained a high level of spiritual content, not necessarily that of religion, but that of the 'spirit of man,' a spirit defined by his truth and honor. My sculpture is based on this form of spirituality.

The STANDING ARCH was inspired by Buckminster Fuller's concrete suspension bridge and deals with making large sculpture portable while concentrating on the fundamental issue of form and the relationship between negative and positive space.
