Littoral Drift, 2012 Debuts at the San Diego County Administration Campus
The seven sculptures by San Diego artist Anne Mudge comprising Littoral Drift are variations on a theme. Their delicately woven upper expanses contrast with darkly attenuated stems, where densely wrapped nodes suggestive of a generative principle protrude and trail off into space. The symmetrical geometries of the frameworks are offset by the randomness of hand-woven skins stretched tautly across them. Together, canopy and stem are expressions of light and dark, earth and air, contraction and release, and suggest any number of biological forms, whether aquatic or terrestrial. See photos and larger video at Anne's page.

The LookoutDominguez Awarded La Mesa Cennenial Public Art Project: The Island
A (tiny) island at the edge of the Village area of La Mesa was chosen for a public art work celebrating La Mesa's Centennial. The committee wanted something that would relate to the Village thematically, incorporate a historical element, a donor recognition area and a time capsule, plus be art. It's on La Mesa Blvd, which was originally called Lookout Avenue. It may change somewhat before it's finally built. There's an optional seatwall indicated. The bronze snail is a playful historical reference to Helix aspersa, the snail discovered in the area in the 1800's which inspired the naming of nearby Mount Helix. Learn more about Mary Lynn Dominguez or download the proposal (great images!).
