The Torch of Libertas

The Torch of Libertas



24 x 24 inches

black masking tape and copper on wood panel (resin coated)


Based on the torch from Frederic-Auguste Bartholdi's late 19th century sculpture (The Statue of Liberty), this object reinforces the idea of enlightenment and freedom. It is the size of a real life torch, which I wanted it to seem accessible for all. The flame of the torch is not extinguished, it simply has yet to be ignited.
