Skywalker

Skywalker was first exhibited outdoors at the Aldrich Museum . The shadows behind the heads were made of a black lucite that reflected the sky. Nine, 30 foot long felt vines were hand cut and tethered to cast rocks that were dug 3 feet into the ground. In his catalog essay of the show “Intricacy”, Greg Lynn (architect, GLForm) terms Skywalker’s way of building as a “fused form” and states: “although the content of Collura’s women’s faces in their agonizing expressions come from classical sources, their multiplication, mutation, and fusion constitutes and altogether new form of sculptural cohesion”
