"Triptych" Alabaster Abstract Stone Sculpture
Green/ Brown Alabaster
10"w x 5"d x 12"t
Base: 7" x 9" black granite
Triptych reminds me of a plant that is always reaching for the sun. Though rooted to the base, he embodies the happiness and freedom associated with freedom from care. Triptych is closely related to Embark, Oonami, Hansou, Skating, and Ugokasu. All six deal with happy, effortless movement over a slick surface.
About the Motion Series
Movement is an unusual activity to catch in stone. Stone Sculpture is noted for being solid, rooted to the ground, and unchanging. Exploring unanticipated action is the common feature of the Motion Series. A sculpture caught in the act of falling, another sculpture caught just before it is ready to leap off its' base, another seemingly moving effortlessly across its' base. All of these are displaying that elusive stone quality - movement.
