Artist Statement: Polymorphosis describes the existence of several species within a single environment. Biologically it is the ability of a creature to exist in several shapes, colors, and patterns. It can be interpreted as the butterfly within its previous form: innate butterfly within the caterpillar. In this specific, case the organic form morphs to the inorganic. Butterflies are appreciated for their beauty, gracefulness, and fragile elegance. They are a powerful symbol of regeneration, of new hope, and the way in which life can undergo incredible changes to produce a new and inspiring form. As a symbol of urban renewal, they speak of transformation and rebirth. The benevolent nature of this creature reflects a standard for a way in which harmony can exist where it can be found. It is my hope that this sculpture can reside where it will enhance its environment and bring a sense of peace to those who view it.
Polymorphosis is made with 3/8” steel. My design was fabricated. It was plasma cut from my JPEG with assistance from a CAD program. I then had it powder coated to give it protection from the elements.People's Choice Award:
