‘Exaltation’ is in tribute to an inspirational friend.
Dealing with some serious health issues, this friend maintained a positive outlook. At one point, she referenced some poetry along the lines of “Sun, kiss me like you mean it today, or I’ll be forced to cheat on you with the moon tonight.”
My friend’s intentional attitude and that quote resonated with me. I imagined my friend greeting the day with arms outstretched, face to the sun, basking in the radiance of a new day, grateful to be alive.
‘Exaltation’ is the manifestation of that vision. I hope this sculpture uplifts viewers and brings inspiration.
This sculpture's dimensions are 20" x 12" x 8".
On Saturday evening, October 5, Third Coast Gallery in Galveston, TX, displayed a collection of my welded steel sculpture and hammered sheet vessels.
Friends and family joined me for my gallery debut and celebrated this milestone with me. I'm so grateful for their support and for making the effort to attend ArtWalk, a coordinated opening of evening receptions and art-related events at galleries and art spaces held in the heart of historic downtown Galveston.
The weather was lovely, and ArtWalk had a great turnout. Third Coast Gallery had good foot traffic practically the whole time, and I sold several pieces that evening.
My pieces will be on display through November 27. If you stop by, please tell Jack and Charlie hello!
