"In my Soul"

2013 ArtPrize Entry

"In my Soul" is a sculpture made from thousands of nails welded into hundreds of birds. These birds represent events in our lives. Doves and Ravens, give us a visual form of right and wrong, good and evil, peace and turmoil, joy and anguish, all struggling to take the shape of what could be our final form. This is a work in progress; your involvement gives this piece a much deeper meaning. We all have been dealt ravens in our lives, things that we feel deep in our soul. If you are ready to take something very negative and start turning it toward something more positive, I invite you to paint a raven into a dove. Over the next few weeks we will see that we are not alone in our struggles as this soul transforms. If I am not at my entry, please feel free to e-mail me to set up a time. bsecunda@weldart.com
