SCULPTURE CAST IN BRONZE WITH PATINA FINISH
10' FT. MOUNTED ON BRONZE BASE (14' ft)
"Liberty (R)evolution" stands as a monumental sculpture, a testament to the enduring journey of humanity through the annals of time. In crafting this colossal work, I sought to capture the essence of our relentless pursuit of liberty, a pursuit that has transcended the bounds of centuries and civilizations.
At its core, "Liberty (R)evolution" serves as an homage to the indomitable spirit of humanity. It stands as a visual narrative of our shared history, charting the evolution of freedom across the sprawling tapestry of cultures and eras. The sculpture represents an ardent declaration of the collective human aspiration for autonomy, dignity, and justice.
The sculpture's name itself encapsulates its essence: "Liberty (R)evolution." The parenthetical 'R' underscores the idea of an ongoing revolution, a ceaseless yearning for greater freedom that refuses to be bound by time or place. It represents not only revolutions marked by historical events across eras of humanity, but also the evolution of our understanding and definition of liberty.
"Liberty (R)evolution" embodies a duality. From one perspective, it embodies the past, with each element of the sculpture evoking the struggles and victories of bygone eras. From another perspective, it signifies the future, beckoning us forward to a world where liberty continues to evolve, where boundaries are dismantled, and where all are afforded the same rights and freedoms.
The sculpture's form is striking and multifaceted. Its dynamic design symbolizes the intricate interplay of cultures and ideologies that have shaped the course of human history. The use of shapes, language, and textures reflects the resilience of humanity in the face of adversity, the strength required to break free from the constraints of oppression, and the beauty that can emerge from such chaos.
"Liberty (R)evolution" is an invitation to contemplate our shared heritage and our shared destiny. It invites us to reflect on the revolutions that brought us to this point and the evolution that awaits. It is a call to action, challenging us to be stewards of liberty in our time, nurturing and advancing the principles of justice and freedom, and ensuring that the next chapters of the human story are marked by progress and equality.
“A sphere made of light divides the night, whistling down the ages. Pierce the sky to crystallize history’s tattered pages. A cudgel on the ruling class, a stone to slay the ogre at last. Here to quell the fire raging, a pill to swallow, a load to shoulder; civilization’s clash with power. A return to the mother-our golden past. These ancient seeds of renaissance, aloft to flower. This is Liberty, the lucky find! Here for now but not for free. It’s the higher evolution of humankind.” -Matthew "Timeless" Welter
