Interacting with Art — or are they Entings?

A new "stickwork" creation by sculpture Patrick Dougherty on the lawn of the Honolulu Museum of Art.

Good Day, God!

This intriguing Stickwork graces the lawn of the Honolulu Museum of Art. I’d previously seen Stickwork on Maui at the Hui No’eau’s Kaluanui Estate. These Honolulu  stickwork are creations of sculptor Patrick Dougherty. Remarkable!

I sense in these, God, some Creature from a Bygone Age. I thought of Ents and then, well no, maybe Entings? But some living creatures, surely? Ah, God, author J.R.R. Tolkien would know!

I like that. And I liked walking

Peering out of a Stickwork Creature.

inside them — and peering out of them. I felt as if I were in a sort of “living” tree house.

On a more mundane level, God, it made me remember that peasants in Europe lived in daub and wattle huts. Hmm. I just read that daub and wattle construction has been used since neolithic times and on most continents. Of course, Patrick’s “wattle” is ART.

Still, I can’t help picturing them covered with “daub” and set in some exotic locale. Is that just me, God? Or do women tend to look for places to set up housekeeping? Ah well. It was a joy to interact with this stickwork creation.

Thank You, God, for Art that delights and surprises and stimulates our imaginations.
