Bound Between

A mixed media sculptor who has planned and executed more than seven major sculpture commissions over the past ten years, Jerome Meadows is a Washington, D. C., artist whose commissions can be seen in Alaska, Georgia, Virginia, New Mexico, and Maryland, among other states. Trained in the figure tradition, Meadows is fond of using a variety of media such as wood, stone, metal, and cast cement in one composition. The curve is used as a basic geometric element in many of the works of the late 1980s and early 1990s, and it often serves to unify two or more forms that are the dominant figure features of a given work. Meadows utilizes a variety of materials such as coral, wood, stone, steel, and wire in a harmonious relationship with compositional forms that are both abstract and organic.

In Bound Between, the artist places two curvilinear wooden forms in a parallel formation, thereby creating the action of smaller surges of energy from a bow about to be pulled upon. The result is a vibrant movement between two arches interacting on different planes.  A. L. C.
