After a green coyote and a blue gorilla, sculpture in Railyard Park has gone more abstract.
“Shadow Light Lens” by Santa Fe artist Don Redman is the latest installation in the green circle surrounded by picnic benches. Redman is quoted by the Railyard folks as saying he “explores the laws of nature to create sculptures to serve as a powerful connection to and symbol of the spirit of community…”
Well, a good place to have his work displayed, then, since Santa Feans and visitors head to the park periodically for various events or just to enjoy the gardens and peace of nature.
The pieces, made out of marine-grade stainless steel, create a varying pattern of shadows as the sun moves through the sky (or as the Earth rotates, but that doesn’t sound as poetic).
