Joan Waters - Spot

Raw, welded oxidized steel

Emphasizing the two-dimensionality of this cookie cutter creature crafted not from the sweet dough of childhood it evokes, but from 100 pounds of welded steel, this canine character first sprang from the artistís pen thirty years ago. Waters has invented a graphic icon that raises our spirits and challenges our perceptions of space. Joan Waters holds a BFA from the Maryland Institute of Art. She currently lives and works in Phoenix, Arizona.
