Having grown up in a farming family, the concept behind 2 Farmers was second nature to me.
Each farmer represents the ever crucial balance between the two weathers needed for crop production. The farmer on the left has a yellow sun (steel ball) and the farmer on the right has stainless steel clouds and rain.
2 Farmers is one of my earliest sculptures that was not strictly an abstract geometric design. It is a good example of a piece that creates a strong, emotional, symbolic connection with viewers.
The curvature and shape of this piece makes it an interesting and challenging build. In 2010, I evolved this piece into one single form and Rodeo Joe was born.
