ENDANGERED: Fine Art & Photography Contest 2018 Submission.
Time disappears and a creature emerges.
I find great peace in the darkness that welding provides. There is a necessity for great focus and awareness at every moment. The welding of thousands of tiny rods creates a network of animated light which gives the sculpture a spirited vibrancy, developing the right line to give the creature breath and life, striking the right resonance. Then I leave off and following the sculpture’s lead, await with great anticipation this newfound expression.
We must understand our interconnectedness and responsibility to the earth - we are together in a vast web with other innumerable and necessary species. I pray we teach ourselves and our children to be both knowledgeable and vigilant stewards of our natural home.
