Touch the Sky is a 16′ statue of a woman with outstretched wings about to take flight. The sculpture is fabricated from a myriad laser-cut sheet metal plates welded together. The face is rendered in sharp detail with eyes closed in dreamlike rapture. The hair flows back in the wind. The skin is made of reflective stainless steel heat treated to a rich gold color. The surface of the sculpture is outlined by geometric tattoo-like perforations that accentuate the shape of the body and emit light at night. Wings made of golden stainless and patina’ed steel stretch outwards from the arms in a dramatic pose. At night, sculpture is uplit from below and with additional light bursting outwards from the heart to the tips of the wings.
