BIG RED ROUND is re-hung to spin in the wind February 9th, 2015
This is the exhibition of Roy Staab in the Jazz Gallery in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and how it is for the first week, with photographs of Roy Staab's installations on the walls and an installation suspended in the middle of the room made with RED dogwood -- installed December 5th, 2014.
October 21st, cold water and thinking... yes I show that I use natural material. but the buckthone branches are too crooked. so I cut the tops off to only show the essence. that is what is important. did it last night near sunset or 6pm..had to walk into the cold water. nummmmm
The work that I made in Korea on the land sort of blended into the land. Mr. Ko suggested it might have been better over water. Back in Wisconsin I waited for the right time to work -- and here is the work over water. Horizontal [trees] did not work exactly here. so I made the center the highest. The fine reeds are supported by not so straight buckthorn are out of the water. The wind finally stopped [almost] and the fog rolled in. Early in the morning I got these magic images, magic for me and what nature has to offer. no title yet. Obok does not work in America only Korea.
I waited for the weather to warm up after a cold September. October 10th is the day I made this is the FIVE PETAL in situ sculpture on Big Cedar Lake on the shallow water by the gazebo off the grounds of the nursing home. I brought in the reeds and picked buckthorn for supports. I made the lines on the shore and brought them out to the site using the down wind direction for the first 'petal'. as you see the center is in the air and the outer parts floating on the surface of the water. With the strong wind the FIVE PETALS had a short life. one for me and then the camera. The iPad shoots video at different settings, I did not know that this would be so low a resolution.. this is all I have.

Published on Jun 27, 2014 In the mine disaster of 1926, miners were trapped at various levels -- the inspiration of this installation in Miner's Park, Ironwood, Michigan. It is made of invasive buckthorn gathered from nearby, drilled and pegged and tie to the trees on either side of the path.
I am making LEVELS OF WAITING on the Miner's Trail, in Ironwood, Northern Michigan. It is a positioned over the trail at a summit going through a grove of silver aspens and flanked by forest ferns; June 24th. I sketched out the placements of the triangles with string. this is the first of four.
