This abstract painted steel sculpture depicts fall, winter and the landscape. I love summer the warmth, the freedom and joy of life after a long fall and then moving into the winter with growth, and rebirth. All livings forms make me appreciate the seasons. The circular form can be interpreted as the sun rising or setting. The horizontal and diagonal forms represent the mountains, horizon and clouds. Landscapes in art are usually depicted in paintings, drawings and photographs. I found creating the landscape in a three-dimensional format a challenge and a way to express my feelings about nature. It expresses the cycle of life, growth and continuum. The interplay of shape, form, space and colors. These elements are seen in a variety of forms shapes and colors as they occur in nature. Although this sculpture is painted specific colors it changes depending on the time of day and season. It also changes as you move around the sculpture and its relation to the landscape. Between nature and the sculpture I am condensing time and space. They are ever changing.
As Gibran Kalil Gibran said, â€œ The mission of art is to bring out the unfamiliar to the most familiar.â€ With this, I would like the viewer to gaze, interact and experience my sculpture.
