Andrew Marsh Sculptures

We just had the most interesting time talking with  sculptor Andrew Marsh at Josephine Sculpture Park. He has been carving big wood there during April 2013, transforming 3 logs into abstract sculptures - chainsaw style! These 3 carved pieces, from 8'L x 22"D maple, 8'L x 30"D maple, and 10'L x 37"D sycamore, will be unveiled in the set of JSP's 2013 Summerstage production of William Shakespeare's "As You Like It", June 6-8 & 13-15, directed by Kathi E.B. Ellis. Wood donated by Foree's Tree Service. We took 3 pictures and you can see his progress on his Facebook page by clicking on his name above.

Featured Artist Video

Thank you again, Kentucky Arts Council for posting this 5 minute video on YouTube. It brings back good memories of last autumn's Open Studio, when this was filmed. I talk about designing the house and studio, and my process. It was a nice surprise to see my favorite drawings done with walnut ink and the small murmuration outside at the end.
