Prairie Joint, 2012

10,700.00

Corten steel and stainless steel

Jason Verbeek uses the landscape as a reference and sometimes as a component in his work. He recently worked on a series of works which incorporate living plants (sedums), which are grown on and within the sculpture itself. The plants are able to flourish in the the Midwest climate on the surface of the sculpture.

Prairie Joint is constructed from corten steel, (a weathering and durable steel alloy), arcs which were repurposed from construction salvage.

Artist Biography: Jason Verbeek

“At a young age I began working for a specialized ecological excavating company, and soon after I became a member of the local 150 operating engineers union. For the better part of the past 25 years, I have made a living shaping the earth; building and restoring stream banks, wetlands, ponds and parks in the tri-state area.”

“Creating sculpture for me has always consisted of two elements: the work itself and the environment in which it is installed. My sculpture currently has been evolving into living, self-sufficient entities both within the sculpture, and in the built environment.”

Jason was born in Chicago, Illinois, 1975.
