Bihar Diwas - Under Pressure





TITLE : Under Pressure

SIZE : height 9'.6"

MEDIUM : Pink Marble

PROJECT :
International Artists' Sculpture Camp
organized by Rang-Vikalp
for Givernment of Bihar State (INDIA)
on occasion of Bihar Diwas 2011.


ARTIST STATEMENT :

Pressure is often seen as negative energy. Something that presses us down.
I beg to differ.

In this sculpture, I have tried to depict Potential Energy,
like the Energy of a pressed spring.... Silent, Resilient, Ready to burst....
and when it bursts, it enables the spring to push objects heavier than itself.

Such Energies reside within every living being
We sway, deflect, compress and eventually expand....
to release Energies that push us towards our maximum potential.


Positive pressures of Motivation, Purpose and Definite Aim
direct a person's course of life.

An impressive piece of work - I like the pressure statement - also of course the material (marble) came into being through tremendous pressure in the earth, and it came out beautifully too.

Thanks, Jennifer...

I was oblivious to the marble-factor in the making of this piece before you mentioned it. Thanks for your profound input!
