About

Fragments of steel are welded, like a patchwork, into an open hand in this outdoor sculpture by Susan Valyi. The work is imbued with humor and because it is made from discarded materials found in her community, it also documents a place and time. "Sometimes a friend will put a piece of something in my hand and express the hope that I can use it. Not only is my community embedded in my sculptures but my work also signifies time for me by recording particular experiences and stories. It does satisfy me to some small extent that instead of using more of our planet’s resources I’m trying to use up an infinitesimally small amount of what we already have." - Susan Valyi Valyi studied at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. Her outdoor and indoor sculptures are held in many private collections.
