Stonedancers

May 23, 2010

I have temporarily run out of photos of Herbert Freeman’s artwork.   It may be some time before I am able to post some more. Rather than put this blog on hiatus I have decided to head each post with the work of another of Orlando’s best folk artists: Morgan Steele.  I will post Mr. Freeman’s work when it again becomes available.   

Wabbit Plays the Blues

 When I was searching the net for photographs of artwork located at the Albany Bulb the pictures of the balanced stones on the waterfront reminded me of the sculptures of Fawzi Benhariz a homeless artist in Seattle.  I did a little research and discovered that he had visited San Francisco around the time the photographs may have been taken.  However, I now do not think those structures are Benhariz’s.  It turns out there are several rock balancing artists in the area, including Bill Dan a great Maestro of  balance.  There are stonedancers all over the world.  The following are some examples I have located.

Fawzi Benhariz - Seattle, Washington

Bill Dan - San Francisco Bay

Bill Dan - San Francisco Bay

Daryl Maddeaux - Toronto, Canada

Jim Needham - Chicago, Illinois

David R. Darrow - Carlsbad, California

Zach Pine - Kohala, Hawaii

Joel Carter - Invocation

Volker Paul - Germany

Mario Carnè - Italy

lithotao - Covatanne, Switzerland

Lila Higgins - Deer Island, Winthrop, Massachusetts
