Paine's Dendroids have evolved from straightforward stainless-steel trees to radical inventions and aberrations to twisted and writhing forces of nature. His decision to call his sculptures Dendroids stems from his passion for indeterminacy and his quest for the ambiguous.
Five key Dendroid models will be presented, including Model for Ferment, a 54-inch version of Paine's 56-foot sculpture, to be installed in the Kansas City Sculpture Park this April.
