|Carol Mickett & Robert Stackhouse, "Breath of Water""|
Carol Mickett and Robert Stackhouse are artists who have collaborated for over a decade making large sculptures, prints and paintings, many of them commissioned. They invited me to their large studios to see their latest work, "A Breath of Water" before dismantling it, driving it to New York City, where it will be reassembled at the LAB Gallery [Link], which is at the intersection of Lexington and 47th, in the ground floor of the Roger Smith Hotel.
The pictures you see here are of the piece assembled in their St. Pete studio. The last time I reviewed them here was for a show at University of Tampa [Link]. In the picture at left can be seen one "slice" or arc section of the entire sculpture. As you can see, though it will fit in a rectangular space (which the sculptors had carefully delineated to scale with blue tape) it is a semi-circular form. The frame bits, which you can see curved and straight through the top and bottom of this picture are made of curved wood. The dangling strips are joint paper (no, not that kind).
