Good Wood

Staff Pick

Working in the same genre as Andy Goldsworthy or Roger Asay and Rebecca Davis, an anonymous genius is making human order out of natural chaos at the poetically named corner of Sahuaro Street and Stone Avenue. Within the tight confines of a chain-link fence, firewood is meticulously stacked and fit together, filling the entire corner of this urban lot. The tension between the wildness of the wood and its compulsively precise arrangement, and the counterpoint of the cool gray steel fencing containing it, makes our heart catch in our throat every time we drive by. If you believe in supporting the arts with your wallet, stock up on your winter firewood here.
