Ancient Pathways is part of my series titled “Sentinels and Guardians.”  The pieces are figurative in scale, and they are composed of abstract interior landscapes. I imagine these sculptural bodies standing watch and asserting a physical presence. I want to capture viewers’ imaginations, first by drawing them in with the color and shapes of the pieces, and then by leading them to find associative forms within the interior spaces.

Ancient Pathways stands watch over portal through time. There are directions to travel and wonders to discover in this piece. The bright colors and varied textures activate our eye as we follow the lines and shapes to places unknown.
