Sculpture: Bronze, Metal on Bronze.
This sculpture is an exploration of home and family, inspired by ancient Egyptian culture and artwork. It depicts the nuclear family literally placed on a pedestal, symbolizing the central importance of this unit in all aspects of life. This is a very personal message for me and my family as we live isolated from our extended family in a country where our daughter was born, but my wife and I were not.
This sculpture was originally carved in Styrofoam, which was then placed in sand and melted away as it was replaced by bronze. Because this is a mold-free technique, the sculpture is completely unique and cannot be replicated.
