Scott Cahaly is a Stone Sculptor and Painter living and working in the Boston Area. He never made any art before the age twenty-one while a student at the University of Vermont during the mid-nineties. While a lot of artists add to get results, Scott's is a natural reductive mind. The idea that the image is already there and that the Artists job is to reveal it is his motto! Scott can be found most days carving away at marble/alabaster or teaching others how to..
I made a little spontaneous Teepee installation at a local festival in
MA in July. Just using dead wood, rope and some ingenuity. I started
with the central connection, which I reenforced with more rope and
heavier wood. People saw different imagery in this piece. I saw a huge
abstract person riding a horse.. At night it was nice cause the branches
almost formed an intermediary to the stars. During the day the piece
served as a 'Dragon Fly' landing pad. At one point there was more then
fifteen of them perched on it's branches. I am interested in doing
installations like this with similar or different materials as short/long term installations on different sites.... Scott.
