Nature was an inspirational force for the inventive George Sugarman, one of the first modern sculptors to make color an essential part of his design. On sunny days, Sugarman's blue seems to mimic the sky. In the fall, nearby leaves echo the sculpture's scarlet hues. Some of the sculpted shapes hint at the natural architecture of trees, bowers and glens. His forms convey the repetitious energy of waves or cascading falls, others evoke the animal world, calling to mind dinosaurs, and other large creatures.
