2008 Art on the River Sculpture Hairball
John Anderson-Bricker - Dubuque, Iowa
3' x 11', made of metal, concrete and mosaic. Hairball features three free-formed mosaic-surfaced concrete ball shapes suspended from an armature of mechanical and structural appearance.
Each ball's surface contains both relief and mosaic designs derived from the animal world that contrast playful, uncontrolled, and unpredictable characteristics against the solid, heavy, and static characteristics of concrete and steel.
