This pale apparition is a variation of my “assertive angel” sculpture. My angel defends a wintery scene in a moonlit forest. The lower, underground level shows evidence of man, and the metal instrument coils reference mankind’s fascination with mining for mineral wealth.
I will let this piece sit for further consideration, before I decide it is finished. I may extend the background imagery to wrap around the sides, or swap out one of the items in the lower level. And I plan either to add clear acrylic at the top to close off the three openings, or to install glass pieces. I may include lighting in these openings.
This “drawer” is really a three bottle wine display giftbox, stripped of the acrylic front. I repurposed two of these for art projects! So thank you, gift giver, for these!
Forest Lights: trees, moon, and spirit installed in backlit found drawer
This work depicts an enchanted forest, softly lit and safely contained. There is no risk or danger in enjoying evening fall in these woods, with a sunset soft sky. When this work is lit with the installed LED rice lights, the woods are suffused by a diffused glow and mysterious soft lights that you can imagine moving through the trees. A benign forest spirit lives in these woods, and a gentle green hued full moon rises above the trees.
