GIVE LOVE
In Plato’s Symposium, Sophocles posits that to love is to desire love. The figures in GIVE LOVE represent various romantic couples. These couples explore Sophocles’ convention, and its opposite, to love without expectation. The subtle gestures of the figures depict natural, iconic moments that occur between two women, two men, and between woman and man.The pieces are snapshots of lovers engaged.
As the titles indicate, the figures are out in the world, perhaps having a picnic or preparing to dance. Or they are alone together, naked, happy or quarreling. Their love is insecure, inquiring, “Are You Mine?” or confident, declaring, “My Love is Yours.” The minimalism of these pieces, as well as Sophocles’ notion of love, leave room for interpretation and conversation. What do you see? How is your love?Any of these artworks can be made available for Valentine’s Day, go to valyntinagrenier.com. Online prices include USPS flat rate shipping w/in the US.
