Ted Sitting Crow Garner, an enrolled member of the Standing Rock Sioux Indian Tribe, has been involved with sculpture in the Chicago area since 1973 and has been producing his own sculptures since 1975. Garner’s prize-winning work has been included in many exhibits across the country and has been commissioned by organizations throughout the U.S. Recently he has participated in and curated exhibitions of public sculpture in the Chicago area and nationwide.

“Flambay” is an elegy to the many trees lost to fire in Southern California in recent years, couched in the terms of a three-dimensional abstraction of the classic car-culture “flame-job”.  The title is a lift from a Frank Zappa composition that originally appeared on the album “Sleep Dirt.”
