Barry Woods Johnston

Joy - Bronze sculpture by Barry Johnston

"Mother and Child"

1989, Bronze, 7', One of a kind

Unique among todayís artists, Johnstonís figures embody universal concerns. What he achieves is the release of emotion from the abstract realm of the heart into the concrete realm of the senses. By giving solid form to feelings, he can attach whatever ideas, stories, myths, and philosophies he desires onto our own dreams and visions. He makes our deep personal emotions palpably real.

Steve Mirabella, Art Critic

Commissioned by Evanston Womanís Hospital, outside Chicago, as a fountain center for the waiting lobby. The mother dances on the upper surface of water in exuberant joy over her new born child.
