Ruins - III





Ruins - III ..
By: Nita Sunderland ...
1981-2004
Description: Bronze and limestone ...
Location: East Riverwalk, between Columbus and Lake Shore Dr.
A part of Art-in-Architecture Program ..

Ruins III, part of the Ruins series, was inspired by artist Nita Sunderland’s travels in Italy and England. It reflects her ongoing interest in parallels between medieval and contemporary society. In this case, Sunderland suggests the isolation that exists within a greater community dynamic. Physical separation is suggested by the placement of the figures, while division imposed by societal roles is implied by the figural silhouettes of knights, a leper and a medieval woman.

This is a very cool sculpture. I love the knights which look like futuristic beings. I do wonder why there isn't any mention of the artist on the site, however.

It equally annoys me, when people don't leave their own name in comments!!!
