Fall of snow. Still.
Painted wood, 84 x 84 x 6", 2007
One oak leaf tumbles,
Sails, spirals, swirls to the ground.
In its own world. Rest.
Cedar, 17 x 60 x 36", 2007
sculptural environment holds a monumental form in wood, a wall piece of wood,
and some haiku-like texts the artist has written. But it also has a place
for sitting, an enveloping color on the walls, and the spaces created between
the pieces and the viewer. Fuhrman's sculptural work reflects his fascination
with the Japanese concept of ma, or the silence and space between things.
If this installation were a koan, it might ask, which is more solid,
the monument or the air around it?
