Selling Price: $2,000

Artist Statement:

Rusted chains are welded together as linking experiences in my life. The continuous main form creates a window around an ambiguous future dictated by the delicate balancing act of the distress and healthy stress in the gestures of the two hands. Cast from my own extremities, the closed fist embodies perseverance while the reaching hand expresses insecurity. The tension of the opposite forces provides stability so the structure continues to develop as my own life progresses.
