Passing Through depicts a flock of small shorebirds flying fast – so fast you can’t see their wings! When looking at a flock like this, I see heads, bills and bodies whereas the wings are a blur. As long as a sculpture has enough information to be a “birdy,” the viewer can complete what I an trying to portray in their minds.
Some birds have big wings and don’t fly exceptionally fast, such as soaring gulls. To sculpt a gull, I would put wings on the bird, but a flock of small fast peeps like semipalmated sandpipers are filled with kinetic energy flying so fast you cannot see their wings. So, I decided that Passing Through’s birds didn’t need wings to tell the story.
