Edition of 8
An Angel is a symbol of benevolence, a kindly entity being guiding and nurturing.
This uplifting sculpture could be seen to offer hope and optimism and perhaps also providing the opportunity to reflect on spiritual concerns. The Angel helping us rise above our earthly situation and limitations.
The effect of the piece is in the calmness, the way in which the light, the steel and the gesture of the wings interact. The wings reaching upwards make a connection between earth and sky – bridging the two realities of known and unknown, seen and unseen.
The work has a sense of mystery, we can’t see the Angel but it is present in absence, invisible floating in the ether and also visible through the light. Mystery perhaps reflecting the questions we all have about existence.
