"Sculpted Roots"

Jessica Considine's avatar Jessica Considine Vote Code: 65968

My art is rooted in the way I perceive this universe with it’s unique elements and tones. Each day I find something new in nature. Nature’s beauty blossoms the more I admire it. Like nature, this sculpture blossomed from rotor’s, tubing and piping to this admirably designed piece. I initially envisioned a simple design for this sculpture however, the more time spent with the metal the more the intricate concept grew. My concept was based off of mandalas; a mandala is a spiritual symbol in Hinduism and Buddhism, representing the universe. This sculpture represents the different elements of life; fire, water, air and earth. However, these elements of life turn into intuition, feeling, thinking, and sensing for human characteristics. Without being able to open my mind to these elements and new concepts, this piece would have not blossomed to an elegant sculpture that it is. Always keep an open mind, without so you may miss the beauty of the universe.
