This powerful sculpture by Iowa artist James Bearden is from his "Cathedral" series. These works are distinctive for their dense, heavily worked surfaces, repetitive shapes, and complex compositions. Totem-esque in arrangement, several dense masses are connected by linear elements and stand on a walnut and steel base. The blackened and patinated steel is accentuated with bronze details. The rich texture of the sculpture is interesting from every angle making it the perfect piece for an open space.
