“Commitment”– Sculpture No. 880
The sculpture presentation by the artist is as follows-
The first thing that strikes one’s sensibilities is the color of the sculpture -red, which was chosen for passion, energy, and intensity. The red is spattered with yellow which is associated with happiness, sunshine, and growth.
The anthropomorphic figures stand a top of a round circle tying the overall core company principles to history and ideas of commitment, which create a solid core foundation to move as one energy.
The top parts are chosen for their subliminal representation of what their actual use was. They were steering- (steering towards a trajectory) and breaking (keeping on an agreed course). Those parts are from a 1930 Ford Model A, which inherently represents, the agreement and balance of a committed relationship. The parts I am referring to have holes through them, insinuating nothing hidden, all information shared.
While the figures are strung together with a small steel gas line made into the shape of a smile for positive interactions. The gas line is where information is shuttled to and from each figure, holding one another equal in a life center, that ends with a clip used to hold heavy objects together which was drawn down into the hook, solidifying good unified outcomes through commitment, together.
