'Skyhook', standing an impressive twenty-feet high, was commissioned for Grounds For Sculpture and made at the Johnson Atelier Technical Institute of Sculpture in 1998. It has become a signature work in the park. The aesthetically pleasing organic curves of the s-shaped “hook” and surrounding bit of “sky” merge with high-tech materials and structure. Stones fill the bottom half of the S, serving as weights, while the hovering form, in a further play of weight and balance, is tethered to the ground by a telephone pole and cables.
