John Sauer: Across Tender Land

Exhibition Website

Aug 4 2017 - Oct 27 2017

Artist Statement:

The rhythm of walking along a railroad track or pacing the white lines down the middle of a highway; counting spaces between the cars of a coal train; the steady work of weaving material by hand: over-under-over-under; the breathing of a small child as she sleeps in the bed handmade by my wife. I have discovered that my artwork is a metaphor for order: sometimes re-expressing order found in the landscape, a mechanical process, the rhythm of form, personal relationships, and the life around me. Each work is also a collaboration of many independent parts that are crafted to come together and express a larger whole.
