Arachnicat

2020

Arachnicat is a whimsical biomorphic sculpture climbing up out of the adjacent creek bed and strip of trees to explore Clover Park, in Dublin, California. She is a playful, brightly colored focal-point artwork for the park which can be enjoyed visually from multiple angles at ground level and from the switchback trail and hillside above.  Abstract and organic in form, she has an insect’s body comprising three spherical elements. Her five legs are anthropomorphically muscular yet their quantity and attachment to her body is spider-like. Incorporated between her legs are three seating surfaces, allowing pedestrians and bicyclists to sit and relax within her. The sculpture is approximately 7.5 feet tall and 9 feet wide in both horizontal dimensions.  The installation is scheduled for spring 2020 when the park is completed.
