Harmonious Ascent

As an immigrant, I have often felt lost and disconnected to those around me, searching for a sense of place and belonging.  Growing up in Ireland, I saw the power that large public works, such as the Standing Stones of the Neolithic era, gothic architecture, or the political murals of today, have on the surrounding community.  They inspire many myths and legends, provide spiritual contemplation, commemorate historic events, express complex feelings and beliefs, and define a sense of place.  Such public works create and define the community they surround.   I am honored to have my work become a permanent part of downtown Jacksonville and to assist in creating that sense of community I have been seeking.
