" Lightkeepers "

Andy Sacksteder's avatar Andy Sacksteder

I like my sculpture to tell a story, and evoke emotion. My two bronze sculptures are of a man carrying a lantern with a dog by his side,looking up at him. I installed the statues with sand, grasses and driftwood as background to set the scene. In my story, the man is a Lightkeeper, committed to a chosen life of solitude as he tends a lighthouse on an isolated shore. But the real "light" in his life, is his dog, The love we humans have for our pets, and visa versa is really the story. With our pets we are unconditionally loved, and never alone. I hope that people viewing my pieces, will see and feel their own story, perhaps connecting to that familiar way a dog looks up to, and at his master,
