Sculpture To Be Lost in the Forest

Sculpture To Be Lost in the Forest resembles a configuration of heavy objects: boulders, sacks, or figures on a bed. Rooted in Arp's lifelong fascination with the physiological processes of growth and death, the work's title strongly suggests some sort of landscape but evokes multiple associations that shift as one looks at the work. This is exactly how the artist wanted it. His forms are constantly in flux and morphing, sometimes toward and sometimes beyond recognition.
