Title: Connected

Public Sculpture completed in May 2015, Nashua, New Hampshire, USA.
The stainless steel sculpture was installed at the entrance to Mine Falls Park at Coliseum Avenue.

My starting point for this sculpture was to research the area of Nashua City which is set alongside the meeting of two rivers. I concentrated particularly on the journey of these two rivers; the Nashua and the Merrimack. The River Nashua is a very complex lively meandering river, while the Merrimack is a very settled established large river. I based a number of drawings around the patterns the rivers make on the landscape.

The sculpture represents the two rivers coming together. The shape of the Sculpture is inspired by the contours and forms the river has cut into the landscape; the larger shape reflects the more pronounced meander of the Nashua River, around the city area, while the smaller form reflects the flow of the Merrimack which is less curved. The work’s overall shape suggests the sails of a boat.

Mine Falls Park is one of the most instantly recognizable and vital parts of the city of Nashua. The 325-acre park is bordered on the north by the Nashua River and on the south by the Millpond and canal system. The sculpture is divided by a cut-out form, mirroring this man-made canal system in the Mine Falls Park area. The sculpture is made from Stainless Steel and its reflective quality provides a contrast with its surrounding landscape.
