What Susan Lordi says about her new piece" -
"I have two sisters. As far back as I can remember, the three of us have always been very connected. Even if they are far away, I feel like they're always right here, by my side.
"It's the little, fun, silly moments,thousands of them, that fill me up when I'm with my female friends, be they sisters, girlfriends, cousins... Shared experiences and laughter form a lifelong reservoir of trust that allows us to be vulnerable around each other. And out of vulnerability comes strength. I know I can count on my sisters and girlfriends whenever I need support... or a good dose of humor."
I made By my side taller than other Willow Tree pieces. I wanted the figures to appear strong and grounded, elegant women; to show their connection and support of each other; to exude their inner beauty through embellishments of gold. Throughout the centuries, gold is a valued object. Here, it can reflect the richness of relationship between these strong women, strong friends.”
Willow Tree is an intimate line of figurative sculptures that speak in quiet ways to heal, comfort, protect and inspire.This piece is cast from Susan Lordi's original carving and then painted by hand. Expression is revealed through gestures only ... a tilt of the head, placement of the hands, a turn of the body. The simplicity of form and the absence of facial features signify Willow Tree.
