Hidden or not so hidden Subway Art.
by Tom Otterness.
He seems like a lovely man, I was fortunate to stumble across the work on a random Subway ride in NYC June, 2010.
Sponsored by the San Francisco Arts Commission, artist Patrick Dougherty and his team have been hard at work assembling, twisting, bending and manipulating 18,000 lbs. of willow branches to create and extraordinary row of hive like structures–each different, intimate, and together at once. The installation, called The Upper Crust, has been in progress since February 5th and will continue until the 26th. I spent my lunch break watching them fit branches to create these unusual environmental sculptures. The branches are the only thing used to create them, strictly organic and build and meld into the next. I asked them how far along the row of trees they were planning on going, at that time they were unsure. I would love to see the whole row filled with those hives.
The installation will continue into November, which means a spring and summer of tree growth to evolve the sculpture even further. I cannot wait to see what it becomes. More information about the project can be found on the San Francisco Arts Commission page and more information about Patrick Dougherty can be seen on his sight, appropriately called Stick Work.
Below are examples from and installation at a Los Angeles boutique.
