Expansion is a limited edition bronze sculpture with electricity. This particular work was purchased by a private collector for their home in Joshua Tree, California. It is displayed outdoors on a custom stone base.
I cast each of the pieces in bronze and assembled the pieces so they float apart from one another. I then brought in a lighting specialist and we built an innovative and unique lighting system to make the sculpture glow from within. It turned out even better than I conceived. And the most rewarding part is that the image of “Expansion” means so much to everyone who sees it. I receive letters every day! I feel like I really did my job successfully!
