Hummer with Pears

So much of my interest in art comes from the process of discovery. I have always been attracted to pears because of their sensuous forms. While working on this sculpture I realized that each pear had its own distinct personality depending upon the angle in which it was positioned. I underlined this individuality by using different colored patinas for each pear.Placed in a semi-circle the group of pears implied a conversation. I used the humming bird and its beak as a counterpoint to the pears’ stems to reinforce this idea.

“The boat and the shore
conversing all day
in terms of water.”
