A Chance No Strings Attached
Sculpture - Welded Steel, Metal, Concrete,

This is an ambitious and breathtaking piece by a new, exciting, and extremely gifted upcoming California artist. If you are a person who likes to make a statement, this is the piece for you! This is an outdoor/indoor weatherproof Fine welded steel art sculpture/water feature. No matter the yard or space it is put in, it will grab everyone's attention instantly and leave a lasting impression on your friends, guests, and family. It is original, and handcrafted. To wrap up its overall impression, "it's a stunner!"
This contemporary work of art does an immensely impressive job of bringing the shapes, angles, and materials of modern sculptures together with the rich earthy tones and finishes of old. Making it able to fit into any space or environment, while standing out. An impressive feat.
The water comes out of the top two arms in two separate contained arcs which land on either side of the guitar. The top pan overflows into the bottom pan as a waterfall. The custom poured concrete pedestal and steel supports gives the illusion that the entire piece is floating. The two arms rise up out of the back and soar overhead, while both the top and lower pans float creating mystery and complexity, due to the lack of apparent ways to which the pieces are attached and supported. Even the guitar leans and tilts precariously as if at any moment it might topple over. Making people look even harder at the piece to try to make sense of its seemingly impossible creation.
This piece has deep meaning and representation. This piece tells of the importance of giving someone a chance. An honest chance with no strings attached. If given strings. Would this guitar be able to play and make beautiful music with all the other stringed guitars? The three different levels represent the three major different classes of society. The top arms represent the powerful, very wealthy, and influential class of Americans whose works, good and bad alike, rain down on the biggest pan, the working middle class, greatly influencing and filling their lives. Likewise, the lowest bottom pan represents the poorer class whose needs are deep. Note also the smaller area of the top arms that represent the small percentage that make it to the top of the world. Also, this raises questions such as: if the guitar had been put in the smaller pan originally. Or hung on the top arms. Would it have stood out and been able to be seen better? Thus improving its chances for someone to notice and take a chance on it. The guitar itself is solid welded steel. Custom designed and made. 8 separate metal pieces. The custom poured concrete pedestal with its attached supporting steel "branches" is a genius modern twist on the age old World Tree. Believed in many different ancient civilizations and cultures, the world tree was responsible for connecting and holding together heaven, hell, and earth.
- Note from the Artist: I am very proud to present this very unique and contemporary sculpture to the globe. It is a modest price for its large size and refinement. The fact that it serves both as a beautiful sculpture and water feature makes it even more valuable. But if you like it enough, make me an offer. S & R will be helped with and worked out prior to purchase, but the buyer will pay the larger portion. Determining where the buyer is, I might be able to have it delivered for a very small cost. I will also consider and offer my services to help and oversee with the installation depending on the location of buyer as well. I would love to hear from any serious buyer/collector and answer their questions or send them more pictures. (I have more showing the whole piece at different angles). Pictures do not do the piece justice, so appointments to come and view it are more than welcome. I am looking forward to hearing from you; but until then, happy art shopping!
