Wings

The Wings are a series of artworks in hand carved Italian marble, paper, charcoal, mixed media and video. The wing series was born out of the concept of the human condition. Humanity and the rise and fall of countless civilizations reveals a seemingly cyclical, endless cycle. Immortality and beauty are only transient forms of illusion. However, far from the desolation such a realization could entail, the wing is embraced as a symbol of change. The fragmented wings represent the aspiration of the soul towards a higher condition and are therefore messengers of hope.
