Embraced by the Light the fifth piece in my “They Remain” series in honor of the Granite Mountain Hotshots.
32″ x 22″ x 27″
14 and 15 gauge steel, heat patinas, pickle juice stain, assorted gauge and color wire, bicycle chain parts, copper, digital image transfers, digital prints on beverage cans, copper mesh.
As the series continues to it’s 20 pieces each sculpture shows me how to stay out of any preconceived ideas. Staying open and feeling more where the steel wants to go than for me to try to lead the steel. The art creates itself — I just facilitate and get out of the way. It is an incredibly freeing way to work.
