CyberAngel (2002)

CyberAngel in progress and complete in my Venice, CA studio.

I very seldom do works on my own, but this is an exception. Commissioned for the Community of Angels public art project, which placed artist-modified sculptures of angels throughout Los Angeles, the piece stood for several years in Pershing Square. I had to repair it once after it was vandalized. I have no idea where it is now. Michele Dugan took a fabulous photo of it for the “A Community of Angels” 2002 Catalog. If anyone knows its whereabouts, please let me know!
