Description

Black is the unifying color for this mysterious gathering of fragmented sculptural elements: three human masks, three horse heads, one bird, one feline bust, one caged dog head and a pair of skeleton hands. All these elements are attached to a steel structure with oversized fiberglass bolts and nuts. Suspended in the atrium of the Library, this mixed-medium sculpture beckons patrons to ponder its intent.

  

Artist Statement

"The sculpture is a combination of state of the art techniques, an integration of plastics and metals creating a material illusionism as well as an intellectual statement. The imagery deals with fragmented and figurative symbols that provoke memory recall and cross-referencing. Each component of the total concept stands alone, becoming self-contained. In regard to its meaning, I will leave its interpretation and significance to the viewer."
