Lax-giik copper shield

Sponsor: Chris & Anna Scholes, Twin Falls, ID

Venue: Middlekauff Auto Group, 1243 Blue Lakes Blvd. N.

This eagle head is an expression of my passion and desire to see a restoration of Native American art.  Many of the art forms and styles were lost to wars and sickness.  These traditional coppers, like the Golden eagle to the Romans, were used in battle and trade.   They were the ultimate symbol of wealth and honor;   the connection to the supernatural and power for the Gixtsan and Nisga’a people.

Horse 36″ x 14″ x 10″ bronze

Sponsor: Integrated Technologies, Inc. – Twin Falls, ID

Venue: Middlekauff Auto Group, 1243 Blue Lakes Blvd. N.

This sculpture symbolizes the nobility of a horse.  The horse embodies endurance and loyalty.  They hold a position of vital importance in the rural West.  Not only because of their dutiful service but also because of their “freeing” and “space changing” effect on our human psyche.  I hope this sculpture captures that sense of wild nobility while creating energy between its inspiring vertical expression and a perceived sense of space.  www.francisfox.net

Uncalculated Exposure #3/22 22″ x 17″ x 14″

Sponsor: Keveren Foundation, Inc., Twin Falls, ID

Venue: Premier AutoGroup, 636 Pole Line Rd.

This human form represents the struggle of life and the character it builds. It questions the concept of what boundaries we will break or expose ourselves to in order to protect  something of a perceived value. What is instinctive, and what is calculated? Can we take a true risk, without exposing oneself?

One arm fends as the other gently protects and the emotional struggle and strength of this human form reflects true courage and the individual’s commitment.

The charred wood is an extension of his leg grounding the individual. The nuts and bolts and scarred metal base represent the foundation of the individual’s heritage, and life experiences, which are the building blocks for an Uncalculated Exposure.    www.kennewmansculptures.com
