Clover and Corn

Artist

Name: Marianne Miller
Statement: My intent in "Clover and Corn" was to convey a sense of contrast between the enclosed space of the ground versus the open, brilliant sky. The dirt path, brilliantly lit, becomes a corridor between the tall corn on the right and the trees and undergrowth on the left, with no view beyond. This sense of restriction pushes the eye upward, into the airiness of the sky and hanging clouds. The turn of the path in the distance provokes the viewer to wonder if the constrictive corridor will continue, or if the landscape will open to longer views, giving the viewer a chance to impose his or her own story upon the scene.

The Franklin County Convention Facilities Authority today owns the largest contemporary collection of local art in central Ohio. All of the pieces are on display in the Greater Columbus Convention Center, the Hilton Columbus Downtown and the three Convention Center parking garages. The collection is the result of a communitywide call for art, overseen by a committee of community members and implemented by collection curators James and Michael Reese of Reese Brothers Productions. The artists represent the diversity of the Columbus community, cutting across age, gender and race.
