Outdoor sculpturebrings meaning to theenvironment. It is therelationship betweenthe materials and theenvironment of theoutside world thatinvites us to investigateits purpose. These artistworks can functionwith nature. The wind may move them. The rainmay give them meaning. The sun, the moon, andthe stars correspond with them to show us theway and tell us when the time is now.Outdoor sculpture becomes a part of nature.It will be pushed by the elements to weather.It is up to the artist to build sculpture that willeither resist the test of time or allow their workto suddenly or graciously pass along with it.The works I build are about paying attentionto each other and the environment around us.My work is based on physical and metaphysicalideas that take the world we see and merge itwith conceptual possibilities. I use steel, stone,wood, and other mediums to blend and contrastwith nature and the elements in order to exposethings in this world we are missing. Daniel A. TrippSculptorMy sculpture is a reflection of my spiritualtemperament; I listen to and obey the littlevoice in my head while I work. God manifestshis essence first in the natural world, thenin the spiritual world; my feeble attemptsare to portray his persona through mimicryof his natural creations and the results maybe beautiful, sensual, exciting, or just simplywhimsical and funny.Through the manipulation of modest andsometimes clumsy mortal media such assteel, cement and fiberglass, I attempt tocommunicate love, hope and joy by the imagesthat represent the life cycle - birth, death andrebirth. As I find myself sharing the vision of arevitalized Spartanburg and sense the positiveimpact that the arts make in this community, Ifeel honored that I can contribute to it.Spartanburg is an artistically energizedcommunity and because sculpture adds so muchto the visual impact of a city, garden or park,the public spaces inwhich I have beenprivileged to placemy work richly meldsmy style of outdoorsculpture to thenatural environment.Vivianne CareySculptor

Spartanburg is truly enriched by the inclusion ofpublic art in our community. We can be challengedand delighted by the appearance of art as wemove through our daily lives and encounter theunique works of sculptors and painters aroundus. I am always pleased to see the commitmentwe have made to include these various works indifferent settings throughout Spartanburg.I think it inspires our children to pursue their owncuriosity and wonder as well as their expressionof personal vision and potential as artists. It makesa statement about ourcity and region, thatwe place a high valueon all the arts and theirinclusion as an integralpart of the fabric ofwho we are.Daingerfield AshtonSculptor
