Brave is a continuation of ideas about the body and spirituality. This piece is created by the lost-wax bronze casting method. Liquid hot bronze is poured into the mold and once cool hammered opened. After grinding and a patina, the bronze is mounted on a steel cylinder and granite square.
Made of bronze, steel, and granite, Brave's materials speak of durability and permanence. The sculpture references the form and scale of an organ from the human body. Organs can fight disease and cancer. The body not only houses organs, but also the Spirit that fights against spiritual forces. This piece considers the body and spirit being strong and fearless.
