Pond Sound 1999
Acrylic on wood
18¼ × 18 × 18 inches; 46 × 46 × 46 cm

Pond Sound is a wood cube painted deep green with a dark stripe along its bottom edge, a bass note that grounds the sculpture. “It's got a wonderful resonance,” Truitt said.

Together with Hover, another small sculpture Truitt made in 1999, Pond Sound is unique in her oeuvre. Speaking about these two sculptures, she explained, “You don’t need to make them big physically. […] By putting a large amount on the top and a little tiny bit on the bottom, or vice versa, lifting it from the top or lifting it from the bottom, they are made to feel big.”
