"To the Plains" is a maquette created by by Rodrigo Nava. It is part of the Visible Force Series and was one of a three-part proposal for Wind Gates in Stapleton, CO. The proposal was accepted and in 2019, three "To the Plains" (6' tall) were installed on site; also installed were five forms known as The Five and nine forms known as Marker Form.
Maquette dimensions are 7" (w) x 6" (h) x 2.5" (d). There is only one left available.
Shape is designed by the artist, then cut from mild steel and welded. The sculpture is then finished by a process involving an internal combustion.
This particular finish, rust patina, is meant for outdoor or indoor placement.
