Tom Duchscher ~ In Search of 3D in the Valley
My sabbatical combined two components that were geared toward expanding my awareness of public art (sculpture in particular) and my knowledge of studio art. The first component was a travel component based on research in locating and photographing modern outdoor sculpture that exists in our own San Joaquin Valley. The majority of our students call this region their home but are unaware of the sculpture that surrounds them. The second component of my sabbatical and what I considered the main component was the production of a new body of work. I have constructed and finished two major welded steel sculptures and have two others in progress. These new sculptures parallel previous work but incorporate added form and dimension. These pieces along with previous work of a similar nature will be on display in the Modesto Jr. College Art Gallery in Spring 2016.
