Take a virtual stroll to welcome spring through the extensive sculpture gardens of Hancock artist Scott Cunningham this May through the Hancock Library.

Cunningham has installed over a hundred of his sculptures in the fields and gardens around his home. His steel sculptures playfully capture the light and motion of sun and shadow, reflect the colors of green fields or sparkling snow, transforming into a unique personality with each season. He compares sculpture to poetry, as it can encompass many images or interpretations – both concrete and abstract.

Integrating the visual essence of his three-dimensional works onto paper, Cunningham also creates drawings using inks, embossing, and hot metal stamping. While his sculptures live with the shifting elements of nature, his drawings seem to freeze in one frame multiple dynamics of the steel – its rhythm, shape, texture, line, light, and space.

Connecting the diverse mediums of steel, ink, and words, Cunningham explores the possibilities of each – blending or individually accentuating those elements to create both tangible and figurative expressions.
