This series of sculptures was initially included in our 2018 exhibition Shape Song, at Nashville, TN's historic Hatch Show Print, a legendary letterpress print shop that now operates from the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum and features an exhibition space called the Haley Gallery. For us, these playful sculptures explore the possibilities of surface and pattern, while looking for commonalities between music and graphics. The individual works are intended to hang on a wall (as they did in the exhibit) or as stand alone objects. Most feature a rigid wire loop protruding from the back of the artwork for easy hanging or display on a table.
