Fractures I

Bronze sculpture on walnut wood rest, 2016, 4.75"w x 4"h x 4.75"d

I am intrigued by impermanence: the immediacy of the moment and its counterpoint, time spent, life lived. I was drawn to the idea of using metal to produce a hard, durable and more permanent object to depict what is impermanent, transient and fragile. This piece depicts preciousness as well as damage caused by time, aging and disease. The weight of bronze belies the visual fragility of a fractured eggshell and speaks to the passage of time.
