Digital rendering of the artist’s intention for commissioned piece Ascend/Transcend
Ascend/Transcend: Billings Art and Heritage Trail, Manitoulin Island.
The sculpture Ascend/Transcend will consist of three figures stepping up into “imagined space”. Each pole will have a different elevation reinforcing the notion of ascension and transcendance, creating a sculpture that places imagined human endeavor and achievement between earth and sky. This inference will be reinforced with a yellow bird – yellow being symbollc of enlightenment – surmounted on the highest figure’s head.
