This sculpture is fabricated from multiplegeometric sections of painted steel that have been welded together to form a “weather tower.” The top is surmounted by a curvilinear abstract form. The sculpture is braced at the back with a rectilinear form resting on an aluminum base. The paint system appears to be at least one layer of red primer coated with purple paint as the top coat. The sculpture is welded to an aluminum base that is bolted to a square concrete pad. There is a signature panel at the back, signed “JACQUARD” in weld and stamped “1985 ASS EGY”.
Jerald Jacquard retired in 2000 after a 40-year career, most of it teaching sculpture at the Henry Radford Hope School of Art at Indiana University, Bloomington, IN.
Date created: 1985
