Release!

Limited production bronze sculpture.

In my own struggle to find relief from chronic pain, after three back surgeries with no relief, I had a spinal cord stimulator implanted and it has really helped. One night when I couldn’t get any relief from pain and couldn’t sleep, I got up and created this piece out of clay.

Release!
Release!

Given how those who suffer with chronic pain try to reach and stretch out of the shear craziness of pain, the dove, the bird of peace, in my art piece titled Release!, is attempting to pull out of the messiness and ugliness of pain and fly away.  Thus, as the title suggests, the desire to have a release from pain.

It is produced in conjunction with a local foundry and there are a limited number of signed pieces in production for anyone wishing to purchase one. It is made out of bronze and mounted on a redwood burl base. Looking at the piece closely, one will notice my finger prints captured in the bronzing process.  Email me for a price quote at kerry@kerrysmith.me.
