Description

Three dimensional hawk sculpture crafted from layers of hand-cut, salvaged metal and leather. Framed in reclaimed vintage tractor grill diorama box.

The Process

Time is a relentless keeper. I imagine Time moving as a swirling, spiral shape -- predictable until it is not, like a hawk making steady circles above until the moment it dips suddenly, swooping in for its target, an unseeing prey, one previously unaware of its fate. This is Time. She watches and waits, with the steady persistence of a clock and the watchful eye of one no one can see. I fashioned this piece from vintage metal and leather collected in my travels across the USA. I found this tractor grill abandoned at the bottom of a canyon, beckoning to be put to use like in its former life. Layered behind the hawk are bits of a tin ceiling reclaimed from a demolition site in Chicago over a decade ago. The hawk herself is made from carefully layered hand-cut pieces of scrap -- can you spot the baseball leather and antique ink stamps? Time has acted upon all of these, changing and softening them, as she acts on us all.
