Public sculptor & local artist Ivan McLean is known for his spheres like the large Red Sphere in our Landmark sculpture garden on Spruce. He has his Spheres at the World Trade Center in Long Beach California & a very large one for the new Newport Beach Sculpture Park in California.
Working with architects & developers with the sought after sculptor creates another level of business opportunities for the gallery. Currently Ivan is working on a seven foot version of the stainless steel sculpture with a developer. His kiln formed glass projects include the Nines Hotel in Portland and the glass windows at 11th & Hoyt in Portland. For Cannon Beach the sculptor created the garbage cans and wrote some of the amusing limericks along with his father in law Brian who wrote for and was a producer for the popular TV Show Laugh In .
Personally, I gravitate toward the quietest stretches of shoreline for the solitude it provides and have long felt it was kind of a “northwest thing” to be alone on a beach. While walking along the ocean’s edge, most of us naturally find ourselves looking toward the sea or at the sand beneath our feet. This day, I glanced away from the ocean at just the right moment as this gull glided into the bright light in contrast to the cliff in the deep shadows behind him. Inspiration struck. Apparently, there was something of interest on the beach his brethren had discovered that he needed to get in on.
