WEIGHTED MELANCHOLY

displayed work work in progress

The giant teardrop made from tires is a statement of pure emotion. The materials of tires and the metal frame are inherently heavy which is significant to the piece. To have a tear that is as heavy as tires fall from your eye is to feel true pain well up from down inside. The heavy teardrops that hurt your eyes after being poured out. This sculpture is a personification of these tears.
