"Cor Liberum" at Norton Audubon Hospital

The walls around “For Liberum” have been painted and the stainless steel hand rails are in at the top. I really like how the walls now tie into the sculpture and are no longer distracting. It is a very peaceful place to sit and reflect!

"Cor Liberum" is my largest sculptural experience that I have completed. At a budget of $190,000.00, it is also the largest from a financial perspective. This experience expresses the history and foundation of Norton Hospital Audubon Campus. The sculptural experience consists of two central figures, the care giver and the patient, They are carved from Indiana Limestone. They express the caring nature of the Norton family. The negative space between the figures creates a heart. This heart references the fact that the second heart transplant in the world was done here at Norton Audubon. Of the Eight stainless steel poles that represent the trees of the Audubon Neighborhood, five have Indiana Limestone birds on them. This too is a reference to the fact that Norton is a part of the Audubon community. However, they also reference liberating the spirit. The path that leads to the central figures is a winding path that is at an incline. This symbolizes the struggle through the journey of life. There are six Indiana Limestone history pillars that line the path. These pillars give homage to the critical points along the path of Nortons life that have shaped it into the institution it is today. Finally, there is a simple Indiana Limestone bench that is at the beginning and end of the path. These benches allow visitors to sit and enjoy the experience. If you are in Louisville, KY, stop by and enjoy the experience. Walk the path, sit on the benches, just enjoy the view.

"Peace Lilly"
       
     
"Peace Lilly"

"Peace Lilly" is carved from Indiana Limestone. It started its life being titled "Vortex". However, as I moved forward with the piece, that name just did not fit. Once the general shape emerged, it reminded me much more of a flower. As I looked at photos, there was one of a folded over peace lilly that really struck me. Thus the name. It is 29.5 x 19.5 x 12.75.
