Kinetic sculpture In the Garden of Mount Olympus
Permanent collection in the historic Classical Cast Gallery of the George Walter Vincent Smith Museum (21 Edwards Street Springfield, MA. 01103) in Massachusetts
This contemporary art installation ‘In the Gardens of Mount Olympus’ offers a participatory exploration of the Classical world through multi-sensory experiences: sound, motion, and light. Drawing from the mythology of ancient Greece, my work animates the gallery of plaster casts, replicas of Classical and Renaissance sculptures. My kinetic sculpture ‘In the Gardens of Mount Olympus’ envisions the Greek gods as heroic and also wonderfully human—they are depicted whimsically as individuals with personality quirks. Influenced by Greek mythology and African Art, my sculptural characters have a unique and appealing style that invites wonder and creativity.
