A Universal Marriage of Myth, Media, and Maize




Cornfield: An Artstory  is an artistic ode to the Life we all share.  As a meditation on Consciousness, Art, and our Environment, the art of Cornfield  is grounded in the cycles of bountiful nature.  It has been honed in the rhythms of imagination, and expressed through the mediums of painting, sculpture, film, and the written word . . .                                                                                                                         A Universal Marriage of Myth, Media, and Maize. 





                                                                          Concept rendering of the Cornfield space (76' diameter) with murals, lighting, and sculpture.


Cornfield: An Artstory  is about You and I.  It is a place to engage the power of art and myth, and express the wonder and mystery of Consciousness.  Cornfield  lives in the spirit of sustainability and compassion for all peoples, animals, and creatures of our world.  It is sacred ground for all to enjoy.  Cornfield  stands with the Conscious keeping of our Environment . . . with the Water Protectors, the Seed Mothers and Fathers, and all those working to protect Mother Earth and the sanctity of food.


                                   Presented here are the visual and written elements of Cornfield  -  the paintings, sculpture, structure, and animation of the project to date.    

                                                                     Cornfield  is a work in progress, a place where sophistication melts into simplicity . . .  it is an Artstory.  




The design of the Cornfield  floor plan is created in the spirit of the Corn Goddess, and forms a 76 foot diameter circle populated with paintings and sculptures.  There are two distinct halves of the Cornfield  ground.  The upper half is the home of the seven panel mural Chorale, sitting atop a wooden architecture containing video monitors within each base.  The lower half features a series of sculptures and the five panel mural Room 1-2-3 (4-5), with the companion painting Burning Sheaves.  In the center lives the Dais.
