Farmstead - Kingsport Public Art Sculpture

“Farmstead” by Rudy Rudisell

 Vague overtures to the psychosexual ramifications of good bourbon and long drives in the country.  Images on the shoulders of other images, moving, always moving, in transition, transcending, changing, always changing.  Drawn from visual memory; from subconscious connections with the relationship of physical elements to their symbolic implications; personal, cultural, and historical.

Fleeting time, change, erosion, implosion, explosion, divestiture, mergers, rust and renewal.  Common, uncommon, bland, dull, repetitive, fresh, new, the same; only different.  Microseism, mirror, challenge, threat; so many days so little time. Comfort cousin, discomfort sister, today never comes.


Freezing time, each object – specific to itself – a fragment of the continuum of production.  Light scatters, gathers, darkness comes and goes.  Eyesight, hindsight, blindside, upside down banana.
