Public arts installation on Beacon’s Main Street
Beacon 3D presents a sculpture installation at 164 Main St. in Beacon, with works by Ed Benavente, Tadashi Hashimoto and Insun Kim, all of whom live and work in Beacon. The works will be on public view through Oct. 15, 2013.
Benavente’s subject matter often touches on the philosophical nature of the human condition. “Bones are symbolic of the past upon which we build the future. Moving forward often requires creative adaption.”
Hashimoto’s Gaia Gaia, 2004, is made of recycled wood with remaining paint and steel lug bolts. Hashimoto’s work becomes an exploration of the forces between space and matter. The sense of motion becomes a visual paradox between weight and emptiness, commotion and calmness.
Kim’s Couples, 2004, speaks to the intricacies of relationships under one roof. Women are represented by the fruits such as pears, apples and onions. Roses and the petals address perception of love through a rose-colored lens.
Beacon 3D is a new public arts initiative designed to feature the talent of local and regional artists on an annual basis. They are grateful to Dutchess County Community Action Agency Inc. for providing the grounds for the installation and BeaconArts, one of the fiscal sponsors. Additionally, the installation of Hashimoto’s sculpture would not have been possible without the generosity of the staff at The Lofts at Beacon.
