I promised you one last post on the POAC Exhibit, one highlighting a single piece that drew me in like no other. Part of the LittleBig section, it is this sculpture called "The Arrival" by Steve Gevurtz (it is his "big" entry, the bust in the foreground his "little" entry).
When I was taking my pictures, it was not fully in place and again I was thwarted by bad lighting (the picture at the top was pulled from POAC's Facebook page). So the color is a bit off and it is hard to see all the details. I'm hoping her beauty and power come through anyway. My first thought when I saw it from a distance was that it reminded me of sculptures from the Art Nouveau era. When I got around to reading the artist statement (posted at the end), I could only smile. If you remember my reason for picking "light" as my resolution word, you may smile too. I'd found someone else searching for compassion and kindness to take hold in our troubled world. From here, I'll let the artist speak for himself. (You no doubt will have to click on the pictures for a larger view in order to read his statements.)
