WHEREVER YOU GO INSTALLED, RECEPTION SLATEDInstallation of artist Kevin Caron's sculpture Wherever You Go, There You Are at Pima Community College East Campus

After eight months of work, Kevin's sculpture Wherever You Go, There You Are is now installed at Pima Community College East Campus in Tucson, Arizona.

"When the college's art faculty approached me last August, I had just finished Torrent, my 5-foot-tall umbilical torus," Kevin recalls. "I wanted to create a larger version, and this seemed like the perfect opportunity." The sculpture was installed on Friday, September 28.

See photos of the finished sculpture, including one of it installed, on its own page.

PROJECTS UNDER WAY IN THE STUDIO
 
 

Close up of Fire Mirror, an architectural sculpture by Phoenix sculptor Kevin CaronSquare Up (formerly Quattro) and Persistence (the spike sculpture) are now completed and Big Bang now getting its finish. "The finish on this sculpture is something new for me that I'm excited about," Kevin admits. Now Kevin is focusing on two commissions and a series of knots.

One commission is a Shitake Agave being created as a gift for a railroad owner in Alabama. The other is Fire Mirror (at left), an architectural sculpture for a couple in Arkansas. "I enjoy commissions," Kevin says. "The challenge of bringing together the people, places and purpose is another kind of creativity."

Meanwhile, Kevin is also working on a series based on the never-ending form known as the trefoil knot. One of the sculptures, Knot Me, is getting its finish. "It requires SquareDance, a fine art sculpture by Phoenix sculptor Kevin Caronmultiple applications," Kevin explains. See its current state here. He has also completed a smaller version, called SquareDance (right), from aluminum.

Kevin is working on a still smaller version of the trefoil knot on his mill titled MillKnot, carving it out of a solid block of aluminum. Another, more complex interpretation is being fabricated in aluminum square tubing. "This form fascinates me," he says.
