Transitions 1 - Winter / Spring
Sculpture - Bas Relief Sculpture
First in the Transitions Seasons-Set -
... upon the shifting winds newly warmed, still cool underfoot, distant airy notes are caught and with spinning petals are drawn upon persuasive drafts into elsewhere ... and home.
The complexity of the shifting seasons - the cusps and edges of one distinct idea completed, while simultaneously another begins - a graying of absolutes and a malleability of the concepts of beginnings and endings constantly wheeling through time ... These things interest my mind, excite and inspire me.
A lovely Japanese visitor to my exhibition stopped me and pointing to this sculpture smiled saying "life, a song ... very sad ... but, beautiful." How aptly put. I treasure that comment. How very wonderful it is for an artist to be understood.
From the death of the year past does the beauty of new life spring. To truly accept and fully appreciate this beauty however, one must also acknowledge its transience. The blooms know not their passing - that is left to those who willingly bear witness to eventuality.
Such to me is youth. Perspective is left to the outside - for youth is a swift passage so quickly taken - a fleeting sensory present once begun, well on its way to transition . As observers to ourselves we re-live, for good and ill the vivid nature of that time - delving the store house of color and gloom that its energies have imparted.
This sculpture is then for me a record of a first step away from the doorstep of mortality and an acceptance of that self-same threshold across which one must in time tread ... Ongoing cycles ... Fulfillment and Recommencement.
