"American Family Tree" Sculpture

"Mystery" sculpture revealed! Artist Jay Rolfe is excited about his latest sculpture "American Family Tree" which he completed Thursday, October 25, 2007. "American Family Tree" is more than 10 feet high and more than 8 feet wide and 8 feet deep. In his posts of October 25 and October 26, Jay Rolfe asked for guesses as to what the sculpture was. Today the mystery is solved.

The subject of artist Jay Rolfe's sculpture "American Family Tree" is something that, from looking almost anywhere in public, seems to be "in the genes" of Americans, jeans. Here are 2 photos offering different views of "American Family Tree" so you can see exactly what it is. The sculpture is meant to be an indoor sculpture. As artist Jay Rolfe didn't have room to photograph it inside because of its size, he moved it outdoors for these photos. Jay Rolfe hopes you can imagine it, as he can, in a large museum space and in a large Chelsea gallery space.

This is the latest step of artist Jay Rolfe on his Journey From Starving Artist To 21st Century Picasso. You may view some of Jay Rolfe's unique artistic idea, his 3-D Shaped Stretched Canvas paintings, on his website at
