Christopher Owen Nelson: Lit up by a once in a lifetime event... Todays Eclipse
One of Christopher Owen Nelson's master pieces of premiere Artwork is sitting nowhere else than... Right in front of the Aspen Art Gallery door!
This 7 Feet tall installation made of hundreds of hand ground cast dichroic glass, glass fiber and reinforced concrete never fails to impress during the day... At night though, it blows minds at all time!
With this piece, Christopher Owen Nelson dives into one of his favorite themes: The relationship between what is created in nature and what can be made by man. Christopher has delivered a harmonious expression of both.
"In my recent work, I have focused primarily on the incorporation of the human element into landscapes to draw a deeper association between people and their place of being, where they come from, and how they contribute to it." - CHRISTOPHER OWEN NELSON -
Strengthened by his experience in construction, Christopher's creation is as challenging to imagine, as it is to actually make.
Today, for the first time, our automatic night lights came on during the day and the rarity of the moment almost matched the exquisite talent of CHRISTOPHER OWEN NELSON. Magic!
