Rock Solid

Artist Woods Davy's work has been described as "a collaboration between artist and nature," so it makes sense that two of his sculptures have found a new home at Splinter Creek.

Davy works with stones in natural, unaltered states collected from the sea or the earth, and assembles them into fluid and precarious sculptural combinations that appear weightless. These sculptures of heavy stone elements seem to defy gravity and float like clouds, roll like waves, or bend with the flow of the ocean's chaotic currents.

"These works manage to illuminate the poetry of nature." – art critic Kathy Zimmerer, Artscene, Feb. 2000.

The two sculptures were recently installed on the lawn of the private Boathouse residence, owned by the Leake family.

There is currently one other sculpture found on the property. Named "Closer Separation," it is made from welded steel by artist Ben Pierce and located in a common area on Splinter Creek's main road.
