Artist Statement

The sculpture represents the three aspects to my self-identity, which are repeated in the triskele symbol. The two forms represent the two largest influences, the foundation form represents the culture of my birth, Ireland, while the top form represents the culture where I live that continues to grow and influence me, the United States. At an open central point these two forms collide into one another and support one another before once again independently emerge. The tips of each form are joined together in a large open space by a cast iron triskele, a triple spiral graphic that is found throughout Ireland in such places as Newgrange and other megalithic and Neolithic sites. The triskele places the focus on the intersection of the two forms, the place where two cultures come together to create a hybrid.
