'Alchemy’

(Soapstone, Padauk wood, 12”x7”x17”)

(2020)

Alchemy is the magical transformation of a base material into gold. 

 

I felt it was important to create a sculpture to represent the transformation that can happen when Love enters your life and changes it for the better. 

 

Be it a friend, a lover, a baby, a fur baby, or a life partner - This relationship changes you in a fundamental way; Life is suddenly richer, food is even more delicious, you’re kinder, stronger, happier, you have more patience and as a result the world around you subtly shifts in a positive direction. 

 

It’s easy to be cynical and dismiss this idea as naive or 

or perhaps a bit saccharine but I believe this phenomenon should be celebrated unapologetically.

 

After all, this (and ONLY this) will get us through our darkest days. 

 

And then we’re Gold(en).
