Stone Sculpture Interviews and Updates
We interviewed Chris Rothermel, Bob Godfrey, Anna Knight, and Wesley Maddox about their experiences with the LINC sculpture project as well as touring the CRLG studio. Here are some excerpts from these interviews. Make sure to look out for the full interviews, which will be published at a later date.
Chris Rothermel shared how his sculpture studio came to be: “we developed this company to address larger scale public art pieces. We did a piece in Atlanta, midtown Atlanta last year that kind of kicked off the sculpture practice.”
Chris Rothermel expressed his joy in working with these materials: “I’ve been working with stone and glass in particular for about 20 years now, and I’ve always enjoyed the contrast between the luminescence of white marble in contrast to the illuminated glass part.”
We spoke with Wesley Maddox, sculptor major at La Grange College about the LINC sculpture project.
Wesley discussed the learning experiences that came from working on this project: “it was my first time using a lot of power tools and a lot of like chisels and learning how to use different muscles and different parts and tools for sculpture.
Wesley discussed how valuable it was to work on this project: “being an art student and getting out there and getting work is just such a difficult thing these days. And to have a hand in something like this is just a wonderful opportunity.”
