Reflections of clouds, sky and trees dance off of a polished stainless-steel butterfly wing in East Roswell Park. Installation #9 in the Art around Roswell exhibit is an example of the abstract nature forms that typify the work of David Landis.
A Georgia native, and resident of Atlanta – he owns and operates Landis Sculpture Studio and has produced many works of public art. I did not know this until I checked out his Facebook page but I saw and posted one of his works on my walk of the Atlanta Beltline a few weeks ago (see right).
If you get up close to the butterfly wing (the work is titled “Papillon” which is French for butterfly) you can actually see vein patterns on the surface. Walking around the piece, it seems that from some angles the surrounding landscape is reflected and from others, the wing seems to blend into the background. It really is something wonderful to view in person. You should get out and see this!
