Wings

Abstract Marble & Alabaster Sculptures

Wing Series

The rise and fall of countless civilizations reveals the fallacy of immortality and the endless cycle that casts immortality and beauty as transient forms of illusion. However, far from the desolation such a realization could entail, the wing is embraced as a symbol of change. The material of marble then takes on another level as an earthly, heavy material that is offset by the appearant weightlessnes and airiness of a wing in flight.  The fragmented wings represent the aspiration of the soul towards a higher condition and are therefore messengers of hope.
