Mark Myers has commissioned Craig French to create a 25′ high sculpture for a defense contractor. Appropriate for the client, the sculpture takes its inspiration from Ares, the god of war. The steel sculpture, a modern expression of “Winged Victory,” will be installed in March, 2012.
Craig French (American, b. 1959) is a California native who has studied in the United States and Australia, and been exhibited in Japan and the United States. French is known for his multimedia works that rest, dance, play, spin, and sing to create an abstract language inflected by many accents. French’s brilliant and lyrical sculptures are found in collections worldwide.
This installation is similar to the Rodney Carroll sculpture Myers commissioned for an installation in Columbia, Maryland.
