Ted Garner’s sculpture is an abstract representation of a baseball player. A “Clean Up” hitter benefits from the mathematics of baseball. Batting fourth in the order during an inning means that the defense has allowed at least one other runner to reach a base. A clean up hitter has the power to hit a long ball, effectively cleaning up the bases as other runners score. Garner’s Clean Up hitter is at the plate, awaiting the pitch. His exaggerated arms, thighs and calves are even more pronounced when coupled with the elegant sweep of the back to the narrowed waist.

Ted Garner has been involved with sculpture in the Chicago area and nationally for over 30 years. He is an enrolled member of the Standing Rock Sioux Indian Tribe. His works combine the power of his Native American Heritage with modern art, through technique, theory, material and history. His work has been shown extensively throughout the U.S.
