David Herbert and the Mystery of the Holy Mountain

Seattle native David Herbert utilizes everyday materials, including Styrofoam, PVC pipes, and Scotch Tape, to create eccentric sculptural installations of iconic subjects. During a two-week open studio at the Henry, Herbert built a new installation specific the Puget Sound region. A recreation of Mount Rainer sits atop of a rough skeletal framework modeled after the alien ship from the film Close Encounters of the Third Kind. The artist reflects on his creative process and the inspiration behind this installation:

When I am working on a project I am often reminded of Richard Dreyfuss’s possessed madness as he builds the likeness of Devil’s Tower in his living room out of dirt from the front yard. Perhaps this is a romantic view of an artist having this sort of reckless abandon and hidden purpose to creating art.
