Artist Statement

This collection of 3-5 steel fabricated goats symbolizes the concept of awareness.  All too often we find ourselves immersed in work, worry or just the everyday tasks of life and our awareness of self and our place is clouded.  There is one goat that raises his head up to sense his surroundings.  As he does, he sees all the other goats with their heads buried.  He experiences the beauty of his surrounding while the others only see what’s right in front of their nose.  This analogy of life is familiar to all of us.  It’s a reminder to look up and remember what’s really important in life.
