When I began creating Mesa I did not have any representational intentions. It was an exploration of organic and geometric curvilinear forms. As I assembled the sections, the narrow, irregularly-curved gaps between the upright sections reminded me of slot canyons in southern Utah. I let that notion influence the rest of the process, inspiring a rock-like form perched on top of the uprights. I used a brown-grey patina on the aluminum to reinforce the reference to rocks.
