From the exhibition Sculpture in Motion at the Atlanta Botanical Garden on view through October 2008 and curated by Brigitte Micmacker from Sculpturesite Gallery. Curator's commentary: "Jeffery Laudenslager has taken the dramatic periods of perceived danger so interesting to George Rickey to an extreme in his elegant works, and he expresses the predicament of the nearly colliding elements most eloquently, aided by the speed he gains using the extremely light-weight and resilient metal titanium. But it is the long, sweet release into graceful recovery that is Laudenslager's signature. Hokusai, a fluid twenty foot tall work inspired by the nineteenth century Japanese artist's woodblock prints illustrating waves, is composed of three counter-weighted and slightly curved titanium elements, attached sequentially to a larger stainless steel beam, that undulate freely then suddenly revert in a puzzling swoop."
