Far Flung, Patrick Dougherty, March 2018, Taft Museum of Art, Cincinnati, OH, 125' by 14', Willow from Double A Willow, Fredonia, NY

Artist Patrick Dougherty is best known for his larger than life pieces he calls “stickwork” rather than artwork. Since beginning his career as an artist in the early 1980’s, he has created over 300 pieces that have been shown internationally. He developed his career as an artist by engaging his background in carpentry and love of nature by learning about primitive building techniques and experimenting with tree saplings as a construction material.

His early work was limited in size, however he quickly built installations on a monumental scale made with truckloads of saplings. "Far Flung" is one of his massive stickworks. Explore the whimsical world Dougherty has created of natural weaving tunnel-like structures outside of the Taft Museum of Art.

The work was dismantled and removed in 2020, and the willow from the original work has been repurposed to create a new work at the Imago Earth Center.
