This limited-edition art sculptural piece depicts the unanticipated beauty of salvaged ruins and concertina wire left behind at an abandoned church in Atlanta, Georgia.
Many years ago, a man I knew quite well told me “your heart is a razor wire pillow,” and I carry that with me: I see those words inscribed on every jagged edged fence, every spiral of bladed, barbed warnings. But the thing is, beauty comes with sharp edges, sometimes. And besides – I’ve always had a deep love for the places to which I am told I should not go.
This work is as much about the movement of light and shadow through these pieces as it is about the original photographs themselves. Images here reflect the many angles through which light hits the hardened resin and the variety of shadows cast – an intentional reminder that our perspective is everything.
