The City of Lewes through the Lewes Public Arts Committee is pleased to announce an Art exhibition at Canalfront Park entitled Unbounded II by artist Rachel Mica Weiss. The work references both the limitlessness of the natural world and our struggle to shape or tame it.

Unbounded II arrived April 18th to our beloved Canalfront Park causing excitement immediately. The lure of an artist at work was too much to resist for the folks that were visiting the park on such a beautiful weekend. Dozens of families stopped and asked questions about what was going on. Many shared their feelings as they responded to this sculpture. Please come down and take a look because pictures do not do it justice and let us know your thoughts. We will be conducting bi-weekly art discussions on site beginning the Sunday April 25 at 4 pm.

From Rachel’s website

The large-scale site-specific and site-responsive architectural Interventions in the Unbounded series utilize hand-chiseled obsidian rock and hand-dyed rope to create bound yet flowing textile surfaces. The materials used question our assumptions about material characteristics and reference their surroundings: Unbounded echoes the industrial, seafaring history of its immediate site…

This series highlights the forces shaping us, while simultaneously asking the viewer to question the human impact on the landscape and reconsider the stability of boundaries—whether physical, architectural, or self-created. The work asks viewers to feel a sense of vulnerability when in conversation with the over 6,000 pounds of obsidian that comprises each of these seemingly gravitationally impossible formations.

An object with nautical ropes and stones as found in our jetties will slip naturally into the chosen location.  The piece will appear innocently in the viewer’s landscape and encourage finding thoughtful meaning to all who view it.    The piece will remain at Canalfront Park until September 2021.
