Starship Canoe

Charlie Brouwer - Willis, VA
Locust wood, screws, lag bolts, preservative stain - 12’ x 8’ x 8’

Charlie Brouwer lives and works in the Blue Ridge Mountains, and makes his outdoor sculptures out of locust wood, a hardwood that is naturally weather resistant, local to his region, sustainable and utilitarian. Brouwer’s Starship Canoe is a sculpture about a voyage that “began thousands of years ago,” and combines the traditional reference of a canoe with the inventive reference of a starship to ellicit mystery, creativity, and imagination.
