Strider

Large bronze sculptures resembling headless human figures standing with one foot forward. The surface textures are all uniquely irregular and rough, with long vertical striations. All have colored patina, one is gold, one is green, and one is whiteish gray.

This is one of three Doner sculptures installed together- Angry Neptune, Salacia and Strider. "Strider was named because the giant is taking a stride. It seemed this movement was a defining characteristic as the wax occupied the same space as Neptune and Salacia....I think Strider resonated with the powerful giants. So, they were created in the same space in a relatively short period of time and seemed joined in scale, presence and purpose." Michele Oka Doner, Oct. 6, 2010
Museum purchase made possible by a bequest from Clarence and Ruth Roy, the W. Hawkins Ferry Fund, and the support of the artist
