About George Lundeen
George Lundeen often translates scenes from everyday life into his sculpture. Here sits a young couple, waiting for a train, left with nothing, but a suitcase and the comfort of each other’s presence. Lundeen based this sculpture on a sketch he drew of a couple waiting in an Italian train station. The inclination towards travel is a universal instinct, and this sculpture nonetheless communicates the physical and emotional drive to move, grow, and inevitably change. Lundeen started his studio in Loveland, CO in the 1970s, where he still lives and works. The artist produces commercial and decorative sculpture.
