Perch, 2015

John Sutton (American, born 1975); Ben Beres (American, born 1976); Zac Culler (American, born 1977)

Location: Woodinville High School, Woodinville


Perch is a series of eight translucent resin falcons, six of which are placed on cast aluminum branches. The artists John Sutton, Ben Beres and Zac Culler, known collectively as SuttonBeresCuller, created these sculptures to forge a link between the interior and exterior while celebrating the merging of art and the environment. Installed at multiple locations within Woodinville High School, northeast of Seattle, Perch creates "a monument to the surrounding areas, to nature and to our region."

This artwork was acquired for the State Art Collection in partnership with Northshore School District.
