King of Hearts

The first sculpture in the BLM Heart Series,

inspired by the Black Lives Matters movement and paying respect to the fallen victims of gun violence. 

The original concept began with both a black male and a female form with a focus on the simple heart shape made by our arms coming together when our hands are clasped together in front.

 

This sculpture was designed without movement or energy to represent a quiet and calm shape. The base of the sculpture is shaped like the Adinkra ( African) symbol representing peacemaking.acemaking.

Artist Statement

Reflecting upon a quiet time of romantic travel, a young traveler, free to trot the globe without restriction or concern, is grounded by the world she rests on. Understanding how much freedom you have when it is no longer available can be daunting. Taking a time out to think about our restrictions allows for a deeper appreciation of that freedom.  

THE HELPING HAND

Palmer Square Chicago, IL USA

Chicago Tree Project 2018

Permanent installation in Palmer Square Park, Chicago IL, USA. This whimsical oversized hand and insect was designed for the City of Chicago Park District’s Tree Project in 2018.  As a member of the Chicago Sculpture International group I was invited to sculpt a tree in the program highlighting a diseased Emerald Ash. The  tree was infested with the Emerald Ash Borer larvae many years ago, died and was trimmed down to it's main trunk at 20ft.
The concrete sculpture consists of an oversized, grasping hand (11 foot long) emerging from the ground at the base of the dying tree. Just above the hand is the adult emerald ash borer also sculpted using concrete & copper.
