Albert Paley’s Naiad

2 comments

 

Naiad is a colorful freestanding sculpture that stretches three stories into the Florida sky. Designed by Albert Paley, it is formed and fabricated from polychromed steel. But unless you live in or have visited someone at the Riviera & St. Tropez Condominium Complex or adjoining Beau Rivage, you’ve probably never seen it. That’s because Naiad is only visible for a matter of seconds as you’re driving west on First Street heading toward the downtown Fort Myers River District.

The metal sculpture stands on a raised circular stuccoed pedestal set in the center of a bricked turnaround at the Naiad Long Distancefront entrance of the Riviera and St. Tropez, with a color scheme that matches and complements the yellow-and-white over salmon of the condominiums that tower high above it. And you’re no doubt wondering why a public art installation is stationed at the portal to what is essentially a private condominium development. The answer takes a second to set up.

Many Florida towns and cities recognize the role public art plays in driving economic development Riviera St. Tropez on the Horizonand uplifting the cultural status of a community when it comes to competing for tourists and retirees. There are a number of different ways to fund the selection, acquisition, installation, insurance and maintenance of public art displays. Sarasota, for example, allocates a portion of its bed tax to its public art program. Tampa and Clearwater dedicate a percentage of their capital Naiad from West with Bougainvilleaimprovement projects toward the purchase of on-site public artworks. Other communities encourage public-private partnerships, pursue grant and foundation support, or offer developers incentive programs.

The City of Fort Myers falls in the latter category. Several years ago, the City adopted an ordinance (118.7.7) that encourages developers to either Naiad N View with Porscheinstall public art on site or donate an amount not to exceed $150,000 to a public art fund. When St. Tropez Homes For America Holdings, Inc. put together its planned unit development for the Riviera – St. Tropez condominium project, it chose to commission and install its own piece, becoming the first ever public art project funded by a private developer in association with the City’s public art fund initiative.

The Fort Myers City Council approved the PUD on March 8, 2005, and in accordance with section 6Naiad Against Clear Blue Florida Sky(n) of the enabling ordinance (3260), the developer commissioned internationally-renowned Rochester metal sculptor Albert Paley to craft and install a public artwork for its entrance and turnabout. When the  project was completed in 2010, the developer applied for approval from the City Council to transfer ownership of Naiad to the condominiums’ homeowners association, Riviera-Fort Myers Master Association, Inc. This approval was given on September 7, 2010 “subject to the rights of the City as set forth in the PUD and Public Art Article of the Land Development Code.”

Why it is named Naiad

In Greek mythology, Naiads are a type of nymph associated with fresh water, like that found in springs, streams, brooks, wells, fountains and rivers. Which makes sense, since the St. Tropez and Riviera are built on the banks of the scenic Caloosahatchee River.

  • On July 26, 2002, Paley was cutting a piece of metal with a blowtorch 30 feet in the air when a Naiad Longest Distgas line burst engulfing him in flames. He was rushed to Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester with third degree burns over 30% of his body. “I came close to dying and was put on life support,” the sculptor recounts. “After a month in the burn unit and two operations for skin grafts I came home to begin the arduous process of physical therapy accompanied by several other minor surgeries. It was a long road to healing. The experience was humbling and the journey life changing.” It made Albert and his wife, Frances, realize the importance of helping the victims and families who have endured the painful physical and psychological suffering of burn injury treatment.

 

Other Paley sculptures located in southwest Florida

Cross Currents Showing Original Color Saturation (2)Southwest Florida has three other of Paley’s monumental works:

  • Florida Gulf Coast University is also home to one of Paley’s monumental sculptures, Cross Currents, which stands at the entrance to the university’s interior courtyard between Howard and McTarnaghan Halls. Cross Currents was installed in 2001 as part of the Florida Art in Public Buildings program, an initiative started in 1979 pursuant to section 255.043 of the Florida Statutes, which earmarks 0ne-half of one percent of the amount the legislature appropriates for the construction of state buildings for the acquisition of public artworks.
  • At the gray marble entry to the Patty & Jay Baker Naples Museum of Art stand The Paley Gates, an exceptional example of the unique portals, passageways and thresholds long associated with the art of Albert Paley. The gates are 16 feet tall by 10 feet wide, although only the bottom half swing open to admit visitors into the courtyard leading to the museum. Endowed by Michael and Deborah Stephens, the steel, bronze and stainless steel gates were installed in 2000.
  • Paley also created ornate handles for the lobby doors of the Philharmonic Center for the Arts. Known for his inventive and novel approach to both metalsmithing and jewelry design, Paley cut the Phil’s door handles in the form of a bronze ribbon that both commemorates events at the Center and suggests an experience in time. A fallen piece of ribbon or banner is a recurring theme in the sculptures Paley crafts to serve as rites of passages for visitors entering a building.

 

About Albert Paley

Paley Staley 3It was quite a coup for Riviera Development Group to get a sculptor of Paley’s status for their St. Tropez project.

Over the past three decades, Albert Paley has created monumental site-specific metal assemblages that place him not only in the forefront of contemporary sculpture, but in the vanguard among artists working in the new, genre-defying area that has been called “Archisculpture.” Paley goes beyond creating sculptures that stand as isolated works of art. His sculptures enhance the spaces in which they are placed and, in return, are enhanced by those spaces. He has established himself as an artist who constantly pushes boundaries, questions old categories and redefines himself in his own distinctive idiom, at once visionary and persuasively tangible.

Big Al 05Paley emerged in the mid-1960s as an artist goldsmith, and within a decade he became involved with the forging of steel. He is a long-standing leader in the metal sculpture arena, where he is widely recognized for evolving blacksmithing into the realm of public art and commissions. He has continually pushed the boundaries of his work, its process and materials through several contexts. Forging steel in a form of plasticity and pliability, Paley addresses the transformational change of the material through Big Al 09tapering, swaging, splitting, upsetting and punching. The result is sculpture developed of organic form analogous to processes seen in nature, such as the development of organic form in response to gravity with the emphasis on transition through the quality of line, and his use of steel has been described as industrial poetry.

Commissioned by both public institutions and private corporations, Paley has completed more than 60 site-specific works (see below). Some notable examples are the Portal Gates for the Renwick Gallery of the Paley Staley 7jpgSmithsonian Institution in Washington D.C., Synergy, a ceremonial archway in Philadelphia, the Portal Gates for the New York State Senate Chambers in Albany, Sentinel, a monumental plaza sculpture for Rochester Institute of Technology, as well as a 65-foot sculpture for the entry court of Bausch and Lomb’s headquarters in Rochester, N.Y. Recently completed works include Big Al 01three sculptures for the National Harbor development near Washington D.C., a 130’ long archway named Animals Always for the St. Louis Zoo, a gate for the Cleveland Botanical Gardens in Cleveland, Ohio, a sculptural relief for Wellington Place, Toronto, Canada, a sculpture named Threshold for the Corporate Headquarters of Klein Paley Staley 9Steel, Rochester, N.Y., and a ceremonial entranceway called Transformation for Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa.

Pieces by Albert Paley can be found in the permanent collections of many major museums including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the Big Al 08Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.

Broadly published and an international lecturer, Paley received both his BFA and MFA from the Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia. He received honorary doctorates from the University of Rochester in 1989, the State University of New York at Brockport in 1996, and St. Lawrence University, in Canton, New York in 1997. He also holds an endowed chair at the Rochester Institute of Technology.

 

Comprehenvise List of Paley Monumental Sculptures

Other Sculpture 01The following is a comprehensive list of Albert Paley’s most important monumental works:

 

N.Y.C. Park Avenue Project

Paley on Park AvenueOn June 29, 2013, Paley unveiled his latest sculpture project, the installation of not one, but 13 separate sculptures at various sites along Manhattan’s prestigious Park Avenue. “There can be few exhibition platforms in the world to equal the distinction, visibility and excitement of Park Paley on Park Ambiguous ResponseAvenue,” acknowledged Paley about the high profile outdoor exhibition, which runs through November 8, 2013.

“With this series of sculptures created especially for Park Avenue, [Albert Paley] firmly places his work and himself in the center of Manhattan,” states Patterson Sims, independent curator and member of the Sculpture Advisory Committee of The Fund for Park Avenue’s Temporary Public Art Paley on Park Between the ShadowsCollection, which arranged the exhibition. “With an ambition seldom matched in the series of Park Avenue sculpture installations, Paley has created a new body of work that celebrates the city and the site’s energy and takes his own fusion of delicacy, complexity, and monumentality to new heights.”

The Committee told Paley he could have all of Park Avenue, but he elected to consolidate the 13 sculptures he created for the exhibition between 52nd and 67th Streets because this area represents “the spectrum from the financial district, where the sculptures are bolder, through a residential area, where the sculptures are more detailed and intimate.”

Paley on Park Cloaked IntentionAlthough technically not site-specific, each sculpture has been strategically placed where its scale, proportion, color and composition best reflects the style and architecture of the surrounding buildings and the nature and volume of pedestrian and vehicular traffic. For example, the Seagram Building at 375 Park Avenue demanded a horizontal sculpture that accentuates the building’s open plazas. A horizontal piece Paley on Park Composed Presencewas also used in between 51st and 52nd to provide contrast with the vertical Byzantine lines of Bertram Goodhue’s Saint Bartholomew’s Church. By contrast, the wide intersection at 57th and Park required a pair of tall vertical sculptures to draw attention to the scale, vibrancy and frenetic energy that typify that section of Park Avenue.

Paley on Park Counter BalanceFor each piece he created, Paley followed a rigorous planning process that began with the creation of an abundance of preliminary sketches and photographic renditions depicting how he expected each piece to interact with its adjoining site.  The sketches were then translated into cardboard models called maquettes, which were subsequently replaced by 4-foot steel models that Paley on Park Envious Composureserved as blueprints for fabrication of the thirteen pieces. In total, it took Paley and his team 14 months to fabricate the 750 separate pieces of metal weighing nearly 54 tons into the final sculptures. The completed pieces range in weight from 2.5 to 7.5 tons and in height from 10′ (Composed Presence) to 21 feet (Encore), with the longest (Progression) measuring more than 44 Paley on Park Encorefeet in length. Ironically, it took less time to install the completed sculptures on site (roughly 25 minutes each) than it took for the 10 flatbeds to travel the distance between Paley’s studios in Rochester and Park Avenue.

“So far, private collectors and museums have acquired 8 of the 13 sculptures,” advises Paley Studios Director Jennifer Laemlein. When the exhibition ends in November, the pieces that have been sold will be delivered to their purchasers. The others will be returned to Rochester, though it’s hard to imagine that any will be unspoken for by the time “Paley on Park Avenue” comes to an end.

The 13 sculptures and their locations include:

  • Paley on Park JesterProgression, formed and fabricated painted steel, 9’4″ x 44’4.25″ x 4′; 52nd and Park;
  • Between the Shadows, formed and fabricated painted and weathering steel, 18’5″ x 8’5″ dia.; 53rd and Park;

Breckenridge becomes first Colorado town to commission/install Paley sculpture (07-19-18)

Paley Studios has announced the installation of a 24-foot-tall azure blue abstract steel sculpture in Breckenridge, Colorado. Breckenridge is the first Colorado town to feature a permanent installation by the renowned contemporary sculptor, whose work graces cultural art centers from the Smithsonian Institution to the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Named Syncline, the sculpture is fabricated from hydraulically formed steel plates. It takes its name from a geological formation, using intersecting convex and concave planes to represent the irregular contours of the mountain milieu, replete with the interplay of slope and light.

“The emphasis of this sculpture is the focus on the identity of the mountain topography, skiing and winter sports,” Paley amplifies. “The sculpture’s gestural concave and convex forms refer to the mountain and valley contours. The gestural angle of the sculpture makes reference to the mountains various inclines and slopes. The silhouettes of these forms are basically curved and S-shaped arabesques – visually one of the most dramatic visual elements reflecting balance and counter balance of skiing. These contours refer to the lines of force and the trails left by the skier. This lyric pattern emphasizes the play of line on the snow covered mountain slopes. Thus the sculptures curvilinear interlacing emphasizes contour and incline. Besides the skiers physical imprint in the snow these lines also reflect the psychological and experiential reality of those involved.”

Between the two major concave and convex forms there is a series of tumbling or cascading folded metal forms. These are to suggest the experience of skiing – a fluid act of passage or time sequence. Anticipation, experience and memory are implied within this visual dialogue.

Paley enjoys a significant presence here in Southwest Florida with Naiad in the entry to the St. Tropez condominiums in Fort Myers, Cross Currents on the campus of Florida Gulf Coast University, the gates at the Baker Museum of Art and the door handles at Artis Naples.

Paley expands into discipline of rug making (05-12-18)

Monumental sculptor Albert Paley has expanded his repertoire to include rug designs. In this capacity, he worked closely with Oriental Rug Mart owner Reza Nejad Sattari to transform a series of monoprints into high quality hand knotted rugs. Reza is passionate about the history, culture, and craftsmanship of the carpet industry and personally oversees every aspect of the process that transforms Albert’s designs into rugs. Paley’s rugs are constructed with hand carded, hand spun and naturally dyed wool, using unusually fine Tibetan weave at 144 knots/sq. inch on a cotton warp and weft foundation.

“This collection of rug designs is an evolution of my studio practice that reflects form as a language made manifest through the tangible nature of materials and related processes,” Paley points out. “The sensitivity and sensibility of material considerations was embraced here with the selection of the wool and the natural dyes. Now, not just the vibrancy of color but also the richness of the wool with its tactile quality and subtlety enhances the imagery. The softness and nuance of natural dyes and the material character of the wool create an all-over unity in these designs.”

Paley and Jesse James to collaborate on joint sculptures at FABTECH 2017 (06-27-17)

Paley Jesse James 01FABTECH is North America’s largest metal forming, fabricating, welding and finishing event. This year’s conference takes place in Chicago, and will feature collaborative pieces by renowned monumental metal sculptor Albert Paley and Jesse James of West Coast Choppers.

Each artist will start a sculpture. When they are halfway completed, they will exchange sculptures and finish the other. The completed sculptures will be unveiled at FABTECH 2017 on Paley Jesse James 02November 6.

“Both Jesse and I have worked several decades with metal and metal technology,” comments Albert Paley. “What I do and what he does is incredibly sophisticated. In the past, people have approached me to collaborate but I never thought it was a situation that was viable. What we have established about building these two sculptures is a very unique opportunity.”

Paley Jesse James 03“When two craftsmen that truly love metal can come together in an organic way and create, expect something amazing to happen,” touts Jesse James. “My biggest hope for this project is to inspire people and let them know that nothing is impossible – as long as you are willing to work hard and never quit.”

Following FABTECH, the sculptures will be auctioned by Wright Auction House with the proceeds supporting grants and educational opportunities for the metal working trades. ​The project will be documented by WXXI, Rochester, NY’s PBS station. The 60-minutes documentary will be released following the sculptures unveiling at FABTECH and will be available to PBS stations nationwide.

Paley reports ambitious public art installation schedule for 2017 (06-13-17)

Paley 2017 bMonumental metal sculptor Albert Paley stays busy. He enjoys a significant presence here in Southwest Florida with Naiad in the entry to the St. Tropez condominiums in Fort Myers, Cross Currents on the campus of Florida Gulf Coast University, the gates at the Baker Museum of Art and the door handles at Artis Naples. He has recently completed a project in Tamarac and will install three others this year, one in Boynton Beach, Florida, a second at Michigan State University, and the third in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Paley 2017 aThe work in Tamarac is titled Vigilance. It is a fire-engine-red 40-foot-long wall relief that has been installed on the front of Tamarac Fire Station No. 78. “The sculpture is composed of various symbolic elements Paley 2017 frelated to this important community institution: the Maltese Cross, the fire ax, pipes, ropes and ladders,” Paley explains. “The stylized folded banner shapes reflect the dynamism of this profession and are also viewed as one of celebration for this incredibly valuable service afforded to the community.”

Paley 2017 cCavalcade is scheduled for installation in August. When it is finished, it will tower 40 feet into the sky above Boynton Beach. “The sculpture will provide a dramatic silhouette when accented against the sky,” notes Paley. “The spire-like shapes projecting into the sky engage the quality and play of sunlight. These spires painted yellow would contrast dramatically with the blue of the sky. Although the sculpture is not kinetic, the interlaced folded metal shapes indicate movement as if they are being articulated by the air from the sea.”

Known worldwide for his many gates, Garden Gates at MSU will consist of a matching pair of gates that will flank the east and west entrances into the W.J. Beal Botanical Garden – an outdoor laboratory for the study and Paley 2017 dappreciation of plants.

Scheduled for the fall are a tandem of sculptures called Resurgence. The taller of the two will stand at 50 feet tall; the other is wider at the base and roughly twenty feet in height. “The sculptures represent the dynamic interaction of alterability and change,” says Paley of this installation. “This Paley 2017 ehistoric site is rich in associative references – the diversity of people, history, commerce and social and political change. These aspects are embodied and bear witness at this location. In a broader context, the sculptures reflect the evolutionary nature of the community. The colors and forms of the sculptures interact in concert reflecting diversity as well as homogeneity.”

Albert Paley: Forged Works Exhibition at Orlando’s Mennello’s Museum of Art gives locals chance to meet sculptor (02-07-16)

Naiad Against Clear Blue Florida SkySouthwest Florida residents and visitors are familiar with Rochester metal sculptor Albert Paley. He has four works interspersed throughout Fort Myers and Naples, including Cross Currents on the campus of Florida Gulf Coast University, Completed in 2009, Naiad in the entrance of the St. Tropez and Beau Rivage condominium complexes on the Caloosahatchee River, The Paley Gates on the gray marble entry to the Patty & Jay Baker Naples Museum of Art the ornate handles for the lobby doors of the Philharmonic Center for the Arts. But few have had the chance to actually meet the sculptor or hear him discuss Paley Staley 8his art. But everyone will have that chance in March …. provided they are willing to make the 2-hour drive to Orlando.

On Sunday, March 13, Paley will give a lecture at the Mennello Museum of Art, lead a walk through the Albert Paley: Forged Works exhibition it is hosting, and take a tour of the museum’s Sculpture Garden that features two of his large-scale Sculptures, Interlace and Star, which are part of the permanent collection and dedicated in memory of the Honorable Marilyn Logsdon Mennello, the museum’s visionary co-founder. The artist-led procession will conclude at the Orlando Museum of Art with a viewing of Paley’s sculpture Double Twist.

Paley Staley 5Albert Paley: Forged Works opened at the Mennello Museum of Art on January 15. The exhibition incorporates recent works the internationally acclaimed artist completed in the forged process alongside earlier pieces and drawings. Included in this exhibition are several sculptures completed at Steneby, The School of Craft and Design at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden and other smaller works that exemplify Albert Paley’s mastery of the forged technique. Exquisite drawings produced for finished works show the depth of his process, taking the idea from two-dimensional forms to three-dimensional.

Albert Paley: Forged Works presents Paley’s commitment to the material, method, form and subject,” states the Mennello Museum. “This gathering Paley Staley 4of work represents interplay of line and an expressive vitality through the dynamism that exists between rational thought and emotional expression, geometric and organic form, and ancient techniques and art nouveau aesthetics.”

Paley has continually pushed the boundaries of his work, its process and materials through several contexts. Forging steel in a form of plasticity and pliability, Paley addresses the transformational change of the material through tapering, swaging, splitting, upsetting and punching. The result is sculpture developed of organic form analogous to processes seen in nature, such as the development of organic form in response to gravity with the emphasis on transition through the quality of line.

Paley Staley 02“We are delighted to present Albert Paley: Forged Works to our community,” says Shannon Fitzgerald, Executive Director, The Mennello Museum of American Art. “Paley is nationally recognized as a forerunner in monumental sculpture, and it is exciting to consider forging in this exhibition – an ancient method where metal is heated and reheated, strengthened and hammered – Paley Staley Starinto such sinuous, extravagant curves that Paley achieves so brilliantly.”

Paley’s use of steel can be described as industrial poetry, as evident in his large-scale sculptures Interlace and Star in the Mennello Museum’s Sculpture Garden.

Paley emerged in the mid-1960s as an artist goldsmith, and within a decade he became involved with the forging of steel. He is a long-Paley Staley Interfacestanding leader in the metal sculpture arena, where he is widely recognized for evolving blacksmithing into the realm of public art and commissions. Based in Rochester, New York, Paley has completed more than 60 international public and private site-specific works including the groundbreaking Portal Gates for the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. His work is in several museum Paley Staley 6collections including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and the Victoria and Albert Museum and British Museums, London. Paley is the first metal sculptor to receive the coveted Institute Honors awarded by the American Institute of Architects, the AIA’s highest award to a non-architect.

The festivities on March 13 start at 2:00 p.m. and end 90 minutes later at 3:30. For more information, please telephone 407-246-4278.
