Impacted Figure #5
Granite fines in concrete
Figures from my "Major Impact" series are an alliteration on the impact of the automobile on human society. They are splashing human forms seemingly impacted by some major force. Yet this one (#5), for me is a portrait of Christ's three days while he collected and absorbed our sin. Most don't notice but there are holes in the feet visible on this piece. The life size piece is showing in Chicago, I have started giving the small ones away to individuals who have had a major impact on me, with instructions that when they tire of the piece they should re-gift it to someone who in turn has had an impact on them. We write the new name and date on the base. I hope to see these in 20 years with lots of names on them.
