Abstract:
Patrick Dougherty makes sculpture out of saplings by weaving the wood of sprawling circular forms, which support themselves and then grow outward. His art is site-specific, meaning that he builds his sculpture with a particular space in mind, and the space itself helps determine what the resulting sculpture will look like. His latest exhibit, Shelters of Transition, is on display at the North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh.
