ART ON HENDERSON 2019 FINALISTS
DEWANE HUGHES - Samson, Steel,
11’x4’x4’,

The large scale sculptures in this folder are created solely by
the artist. All metal fabrication and surface finish is completed
in Hughes' studio. Each work is engineered for outdoor public
viewing which includes the safety for foot traffic as well as
being able to withstand inclement weather.
JENNIFER WESTER - View-quet
8’x10’ x 4’

Materials: Stainless steel tubing & Acrylic sheeting
Concept: To create a steel and acrylic sculpture
‹bouquet of flowers› creating a super natural floral
sculpture with ample space for interaction (photos, and
interactive structure).
The algorithmic nature of human vision gives a road map
to transform any 2D image into a 3Dimensional structure.
This has been my sculptural practice for the last 4 years. I
would therefore work from a simple line sketch to apply
my sculptural line aglorithm, creating a 3Dimensional free
standing sculpture.
ART GARCIA -Human Nature, Fig. No. 1,
96x44x9 (inches)

Through serial objects, Human Nature offers a collective
observation into our social consciousness. These figures, seemingly
displaced from an industrial or urban environment, use the
language of color so commonly experienced in our
daily lives. As the hues of night and day once influenced human
physiology, so too, color influences the figure in Human Nature.
A glimpse into each objects individuality is provided through the
expressive application of hue. While appropriating a universal
form as a canvas, viewers are called to dialogue through their
introspection with color, transcending the spoken word.
1ST PLACE
JIMMY DON SNOWDEN -8010 Dundee
160”x60”x36”

Growing up in downtown Dallas I always found
myself yearning to be on an adventure somewhere
or time far from the city life I knew. I remember
picturing my life I have been on many of the
adventures I dreamed of as a child, and my work is
usually a reflection of an escapade or event that has
Influenced the path of my journey. I find the process
of constructing a work is its own expedition and the
finished work becomes the destination.

The purpose of my work is to explore the balance
and harmony that pertains to mortality and youth,
as well as the subconscious and physical world. The
work itself is a byproduct of my exploration and
experimentation to find harmony through the
manipulation of the visual weight of objects, colors,
textures, space and scale. The unpredictability of
nature, the ocean, growth and decay are influential
in how I work and play a large role in the ideas that
dictate my process

2ND PLACE
LAURA WALTERS - Yellow Roses”  
45”h x 96”w x 40”d  

This pair of Yellow Roses alludes to the popular Yellow
Rose of Texas & was created for exhibition in the
State Fair of Texas Sculpture Show in 2018.  Each part
is cut and ground by hand to create the contours.  
Folklore behind the song airs a bit controversial in
today's tide, however this sculpture is intended only
as a tribute to our state's rich history and  the duality
of the 2 roses allows more than one interpretation of
the tale, none of which may be true.
MOUTY SHACKELFORD - SEW SELFIE, Big D

My signature technique is “sewn paint” &
working
with resin.
3RD PLACE
RUSS CONNELL - "El Scorcho",
2 x 4 x 5'.

This piece was made in collaboration with
muralist Mick Burson, I fabricated forms
similar to all my other works and gave Mick
complete creative control for paint.
