Michael Peterson: Evolution | Revolution

Coastal Stack IV, 2008


 Coastal Stack V, 2008

 Teardrop, 1987

From the San Francisco Museum of Craft+Design: "Michael Peterson's poetic wood sculptures are deeply inspired by his environment in the Pacific Northwest.  This exhibit follows the artist's unique trajectory from his early works to his most current organic abstract forms realized through the mastery of the chainsaw."

I like the idea of someone whose artistic vision was enhanced through mastery of a chainsaw.
