WAT Museum adds ‘Parallax’ sculpture to its works of art

The Winslow Arts Trust (WAT) Museum located at the La Posada Hotel in Winslow recently added a new sculpture for the public to enjoy. The sculpture is called “Parallax” created by New Mexican artist Mark Knutson. Knutson describes Parallax as, “‘Similar to the rail lines of a railroad track that fade into the horizon, the sculpture forms a parallax that vertically disappears in the blue skies above. The pieces come apart and fragment just like the changing grid lines that direct the path of the train at a busy intersection.” He went on to remark that, almost just as important as the physical form of the sculpture is the context in which it is presented. The WAT Museum is located in an addition that was built onto the train yard at the La Posada Hotel and is physically only feet away from the rail line that goes through Winslow. Parallax is part of a bigger series of work done by Knutson and his company, the Kason Group, called “Subterfuge”.
