Anxiety-Bot is let loose

The latest sculpture from Fossil Forge emerged on a humid and cloudy day. This is called Anxiety-Bot. The sculpture is a response piece to another sculpture we have been working on for the Art for Arthritis foundation. Each summer, local artists are paired with children who struggle with arthritis. A child and I created a special piece (I will post photos soon) that is her expression. The body language and personality of the Anxiety-Bot reflect the upcoming departure of a child from the home. The fears, uncertainties and separation are depicted. Anxiety-Bot is made from a variety of metals, including found objects and recycled materials. Red shards of glass fill the torso. Green eyes stare wide open. This sculpture stands almost six-feet tall and is comfortable inside or outside.
