Zephyr by Andreas Von Huene from Maine. Granite, 2012

Artist Statement

Originally conceived as a person looking up to a cloud with arms held back as if preparing for a visit, the pose and features were abstracted to allow other poses purchase in the viewers’ imaginations. Visitors have mentioned seeing the form as representing someone reaching out to help someone in need, as a child reaching for help, a flower, a bird, and an angel.

The rounded, tactile, comforting form is accented by select hard edges and by tension remaining in certain curves and planes to acknowledge the pain and suffering of the patients. The arch form is used to create a sense of lift and separation from the current state, to give a sense of shelter, and to be involved with the flowers, gardens, and landscape.
