Gardens at Waters East
Throughout the Gardens at Waters East, there are a number of created pieces of art.They are often positioned to take advantage of surrounding materials, textures, focal points, or distant views.You are encouraged to check out these and other Principles of Design written about in the archive postings of November 12, 2010; November 15-24, 2010;and the final Golden Principle of Design posted on May 2, 2011.
The sculpture shown here is titled “Triptych”.The three individual sections are moveable and are often arranged and rearranged then placed in different rooms of the garden.Each time the sculpture is sited, even in slightly different positions, it takes on a different form and a different “feel” as it is placed here or there about the gardens.
The “Triptych” titled: Earth, Wind & Fire, weighs about forty pounds and is made of solid steel panels painted in three bold colors symbolizing Earth (black), Wind (cloud white), and Fire (red).These are truly appropriate elements for a garden accented with the large body of water – Lake Michigan.
