Rose Colored Lenses

Yep Its been one year and a half since we finished the installation of Revision. I am currently teaching two classes, Advanced Sculpture, and Performance and Installation at the University of Florida. I am also curating an outdoor sculpture exhibition for students and alumni of the School of Art and Art History at UF. This is my next evolution of the series, trading shiny for fuzzy rust, and simplifying the branch structure by slump-forming sheets of glass to add a vertical element to the dark red lenses.

Finished Work

In the middle of the day the light is so beautiful
as it illuminates the surfaces and casts colorful shadows below. Later in the day the shadow
falls into the pool and as you swim under water you pass through the blue, green, and purple

I am glad to be home, this installation was both challenging and inspiring, and I am looking forward to expanding this work and seeing what new forms come out of this.

please pass this page on to anyone who might find it interesting, and any inquiries may be directed to anthonycastronovo

Wow, I cant believe it is actually finished! It has been a long three weeks here,
and five months in the studio in Columbus leading up to this point.

Today I did the final cleaning of the finished work, and then spent some time just looking from as many different angles as i could find. The light coming through
the piece is so beautiful- In the middle of the day a mottled blue-green-purple shadow is cast below and sometimes into the pool. Water was a large inspiration for this piece as I was trying to bring that feeling of immersion into the space
of the sculpture

coming together and soon it will be time to take down the tent and see how the piece actually

Getting Closer

This is a collage of the most recent photos taken yesterday. I am now working alone as Katy
has returned to Columbus. Today We attached the last few branches before she left, and I spent the rest of the day finishing the welds and adding a few more pieces. By the end of tomorrow I
should be close to finished with the third and final tree! It has been hard to visualize the
form of the overall structure from inside the tent, and I cant wait to take down the tent and view
the finished work!
