Our Lady of Carroll Gardens (Aura of the Virgin)
cast iron, steel, steam heat
85" x 52" x 48"
This was first exhibited in "3000 Degrees" at Paul Rodgers 9W. It completely heated the exhibition space and rose it to such a temperature that the gallery down the hall called the fire department. The work is comprised of three seperate sculptures joind as one with the Madonna. The title of the work is derived from the numerous images of the Virgin in the Carroll Gardens neighborhood of Brooklyn that was at the time the location of my studio. This is the first time I used the form of the Madonna.
