About the work:

Vida in Italian Scalione Alabaster by Carol Crawford.

This piece is part of Radiant Dreams, a group exhibition showcasing the work of more than 50 artists from the Modern Times community. Radiant Dreams invited our artists to unleash their most vibrant work, embracing colour, movement and verve. The resulting works are a buoyant collection reflecting optimism, energy and hope as we emerge from the monotonous routine of lockdown.

“As many great artists and creatives will attest it is my ability to be creative that has sustained me over the past… close to two years. Being artistic means you ‘feel’ things and at times these feelings can be magnified.”

“I created Vida with a feeling of comfort, of nurturing, of solace to the individual who views her and to the environment that surrounds the sculpture. Vida does not shout out loudly at you, she needs to be contemplated individually and will provide much succour to the observer with her curvilinear, intertwined form and also her playful interaction with light and shadow. She can be viewed from many angles and as such changes personality as you walk around her or twist her on her base. The brass base adds the extra dimension of reflection and radiation. Dreams emanate from Vida, radiant and positive dreams.” Crawford says.
