Artist Statement:

Look at any aerial photo! All rivers and streams take on a serpentine pattern as they carve their way through the landscape toward the equator. As eons pass, the constantly flowing energy of the water scours away the banks carving and depositing alternately until the watercourse turns back on itself and abandons its former channel for a new path. The resultant landform is the “oxbow.”

About Tim Adams

Tim Adams is a 1985 landscape architecture graduate of Iowa State University and is a registered professional landscape architect. Adams is a lifelong student of the arts. His career has been built around creating and installing “One Off” sculptures and designs for gardens, entry features, parks, churches, municipalities, and schools. Adams’ primary medium is weathered steel, stainless steel, aluminum, acrylic sheet/Lexan, and native limestone. His inspiration comes from his professional training in landscape architecture and horticulture. Natural landforms and native plants are the starting points for Adams’ sculpture concepts. To foster sustainability, he strives to incorporate recycled metals and repurposed materials when practical. Adams’ works are designed and constructed to be stout, long term installations with little or no maintenance needed.
