Dikhotomia (work A and work B)

Dikhotomia (work A and work B), welded bronze, dimensions variable, 1995

Tom Stancliffe makes large-scale metal sculptures that integrate visually and thematically with their surroundings. Stancliffe considers the particular site where he is working, striving to create pieces that echo and complement the architecture, site plan, and landscape in which they are situated. Stancliffe often wins public art commissions and has major pieces in Iowa, Dallas, Texas, and Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina. He is currently a Professor of art at the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls.

Dikhotomia is located at the Reiman Gardens on the Iowa State University campus. Stone columns support two bronze sculptures that represent a dialogue between horticulture and agriculture, two of ISU's most important areas of research. Work A and Work B provide a dramatic gateway for visitors strolling through the garden. Dikhotomia is part of the ISU University Museums Art on Campus Collection.
