"Birds on a Wire"
by Joe Malesky
Have you ever been driving down the road and all of a sudden you notice a flock of birds all lined up on a telephone wire? What are they doing? Are they waiting for something specific? Waiting in a line, waiting is a normalcy in our world. This sculpture depicts little rocks waiting in line, to be the next rock to be able to drop into the “rock cage” to grow bigger. Using all repurposed materials we purposely kept part of this sculpture unpainted so that it’s natural patina could keep changing, then we painted the main section a bright, vibrant aqua to contrast the natural patina.
