 Jim Weitzel “Wing”
My show is a series of copper wings that I have been creating over the past few years. The inspiration comes from viewing a marble sculpture, Psyche Revived by Cupid’s Kiss, the execution of this piece is stunning especially the wings! Wings recall many different things to everyone but for me they have this angelic quality, this idea of flight and our desires to lift ourselves above the sphere of earth. Who doesn’t

remember dreams of flying and that sense of ultimate freedom. These are the things that I am trying to express with my wings.
