Mehiel

Susan Woodford & Kent Hertz
Iowa
Materials: Steel, Stainless Steel, Copper
Selling Price: $11,000

Artist Statement:

Mehiel, the Angel of inspiration, creativity, mathematics, and science, is revealed during a moment of heart-break. Mehiel, huddled on the geared floor in intense anguish and vulnerability, has internal illumination demonstrating a slow heartbeat. The feathers reaching to the sky are windmill, or turbine, or weapon-like to show strength, ingenuity, and protection. As the eye follows the spiral of the copper feathers back down to a steel wingpit, an oval at the heart of the wing welcomes viewers to participate with the sculpture. A singing bowl and attached mallet allows viewers to create a low, quiet, sustainable tone as they rotate the mallet along the outside rim.
