Cornfield: An Artstory is an artistic ode to the Life we all share. As a multimedia meditation on Consciousness, Art, and our earthly environment, the art of Cornfield is grounded in the cycles of bountiful nature, 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.
" Cornfield - a place where sophistication melts into simplicity."
Concept rendering of the Cornfield space (76' diameter) with murals, lighting, and sculpture . . . elements and images above gleaned from Cornfield.
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 nonviolence and compassion for all people, animals, and creatures of our world. Cornfield stands in solidarity with the conscious keeping of our environment, with the Water Protectors, with the Seed Mothers and Fathers working to the protect the integrity and sanctity of our food, with all those working to protect Mother Earth and all beings.
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 . . . it is an Artstory.
The design of Cornfield is created in the spirit of the Native American Corn Goddess and contained within a 76 foot circle. 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 including video monitors within each base.
The lower half houses three sculptures, including Boat, and features the five panel mural Room 1-2-3 (4-5) with the painting Burning Sheaves. In the center lives the Dais.
