Gary Wahl


Gary Wahl received his MFA in sculpture from the University of Iowa and is currently an adjunct professor at Ablion College in Michigan. He writes, “This piece alludes to both physical and emotional displacement, a lack of a sense of place. Our society is increasingly nomadic and the ideal of the family homestead passed down through generations is less attainable.” He uses materials (concrete, steel) that are intended to outlast their maker, evoking a sense of ruin, loss of meaning and function.

“Uproot”
