Aldo Casanova was a Scripps sculpture professor for more than thirty years, starting in 1966. Casanova drew much of his inspiration from the native plant and animal life of California and the everlasting resilience of nature. His materials reflect this engagement, as Casanova often casts his sculptures in long-lasting materials such as bronze, wood, stone, and clay. Juncture was made in 1966. Its abstract design is typical of Casanova’spieces, though he was also known for his organic animal and nature forms. Juncture is a meld of twisting, interlocking metal forms, providing a stark contrast to the organic plant life behind it. The simple, elegant sculpture has a quiet but powerful presence.
