“‘Joy’ is sculpture from my emotions series. My goal was to find the essence of the emotion using simplified body language. The see-through heart represents how true love has nothing to hide and the stainless steel reflective surface, symbolizes how happiness radiates out to others.
Although I was an art major in college, I didn’t start sculpture until moving to the Austin area over 30 years ago. Since then I’ve made primarily realistic and abstract figurative sculptures, using body language and/or symbolism to express different emotions. My first abstract sculptures were inspired by the petroglyphs I saw in New Mexico during which time I was also reading the book, “Man and His Symbols” by Carl Jung. I was captivated by the emotion and strength that can be expressed using minimal gestures and design.
I like to use a variety of materials in my work and have several series in each of my favorite mediums; which include clay, bronze, stainless steel, painted wood branches, and acrylic on canvas. I have work in several Texas galleries, sculpture gardens, and public places in and out of state.
My husband, Gary Winston, and I live in Lago Vista. We have three grown children and four grandchildren.” Cindy Debold
