Ferryman, Kansas City Sculpture Park

Tony Cragg
1997, bronze
4 feet 6 1/8 inches x 5 feet 4 15/16 inches x 8 feet 2 7/16 inches (137.48 x 164.94 x 250.03 cm)



According to signage on site, this title "may refer to the operator of a ferry boat, to the fluid 'body' of water or to the the molecular structure of matter itself. Its amorphous form extrudes and wraps in upon itself in an endless flow of energy to create a playful dialogue between interior and exterior spaces." The lacey perforated surface seems to contradict the usual weight of bronze.

5 feet 6 7/8 inches x 5 feet 6 7/8 inches x 5 feet 6 7/8 inches (169.86 x 169.86 x 169.86 cm)
This form, like a top, may refer to a turbine engine or some other form of energy. It is comprised of stacked irregular bronze discs which have a sense of whirling motion.
