This sculpture is now completed. As it turns out, its completion is on the first day of spring and the last day of Pisces; sign of the dreamer. When I began this work over four years ago, I could not fully imagine the time that this sculpture would require. Though any time estimate would have been a moot approximation in comparison to my impulse to begin this work then and my drive to follow through with its resolution. A far away inner territory; pioneered and finally claimed: Dreaming Through the Gateway. 2016-2021. Coated steel sheeting, steel tin, rivets, and hanging wire. 14.75" x 32" x 27". *(Note: more comprehensive images to follow in the near future, once this piece is properly photographed.)
