Bloom III Coming to Carbondale, Colorado

My new sculpture Bloom III has been accepted to the 2023/24 Art Around Town in Carbondale, Colorado.  It is part of my growing sculpture series 'Bloom' which is rooted in the intricate folk art of paper cutting from Poland, my place of birth. With each of my flowers,  I want to share the wonder that these forms inspire in me, hoping that each one can do the same for others. The bright colors and fun, bulbous shapes are made to be eye catching, grabbing the viewer and pulling them in for a moment, adding something unique to their day out on the town.  With all my sculpture I aim to add beauty and interest to new places where the passerby can feel uplifted, inspired and discover something new.

I've participated in Carbondale's outdoor art a couple of times in the past. Below are two of my other sculptures that have been displayed in the colorful, eclectic mountain town.  

Johna-Mai won the People's Choice Award during the 2018-19 exhibit. It was installed infront of the Lauchpad - a space for the arts. Then the following year, my sculpture Reflection of Inner-self was displayed in front of the Carbondale Public Library.
