ASCENDING by Alice Kiderman

Art of the day Submitted by Evelyn Kiefer on June 26, 2006

This work is in the Putnam Sculpture Collection at Case Western Reserve University. It was purchased recently from a show at the Sculpture Center but It is not on display yet -- so very few people have seen it. This work is only a few inches tall but it has a monumental quality. The color of the stone is very beautiful. The form, which is similar in shape to a human heart, is very sensuous and organic. I believe it is one of Kiderman's best works. She creates both abstract and figurative sculptures.
