My artwork is an abstraction of reality, it is either figurative or organic in form. The media is usually cast concrete, stoneware clay with steel or mixed media, “Aspire” was formed by by making a metal and plastic armature.. Then I used a concrete and fiber glass product to cover the structure. It is lighter than solid poured concrete and it can be applied vertically.
The form of the sculpture took many weeks of a slow drying process, i applied the covering mixture to ensure effective results. I worked on my sculpture during the early pandemic times.
I titled my new sculpture “ Aspire“ which means hope. In a world filled with distractions and complications, i am hopeful for a sense of simplicity and balance and endless possibilities!
I chose a bright blue to paint the sculpture. The color blue symbolizes calmness, and security. I wanted to create a quiet, peaceful sculpture.
