Jake Webster: “The Train I Ride”
May 6 – June 27, 2010
Jake Webster’s new body of work is called “The Train I Ride”. The sculptures in this series were inspired by the writings and drawings Jake made while traveling on various trains across the county. They reflect his thoughts on growing old, his relationship with death, and his love of self and others.
Jake is a sculptor, mixed media artist and spoken word performer. His sculpture uses the tradition of direct carving, and employs a variety of materials, including wood, stone, and aerated cement. His sculptures are currently on exhibit at the South Bend Regional Airport and the University of Indianapolis, and can also be found in many private and public collections. His studio is located in Elkhart, Indiana.
