Love's Last Look

This work is a metaphor for the awakening of passion, love, and life – as well as its tragic consequences.

Eurydice (Greek Mythology) was an oak nymph, one of the daughters of Apollo.

She was the wife of Orpheus, who loved her dearly; on their wedding day,

he played joyful songs as his bride danced through the meadow.

After stepping on a venomous snake, and dying instantly, Orpheus played and sang

so mournfully that all the nymphs and gods wept and told him to travel to the Underworld and retrieve her,

which he gladly did. After his music softened the hearts of Hades, he was allowed to take her back

to the world of the living. The condition was that he must walk in front of her and not look back

until both had reached the upper world. However, soon he began to doubt that she was there

and that Hades had deceived him. Just as they reached the portals of Hades and daylight,

he turned around to gaze on her face, and Eurydice vanished back into the Underworld.

When Orpheus was later killed, his soul ended up in the Underworld where he was reunited with Eurydice.

Artist Statement:

about the design collaboration team, Jan and Jo Moore

 

We share a deep bond with Mother Nature and have been interpreting her

landscapes and culture through sculpture for more than 40 years. There exists

no separation between the creative process and daily life. For us, they are one.

Our connection to Nature and its inhabitants is evident in our large body of works concentrating on Contemporary and Abstract sculptural forms

with organic lines predominating.

 

We strive to convey a sense of nurturing and compassion for the plight

of both the planet and its inhabitants.

It reflects our lifestyle---simple, uncluttered, optimistic.

It serves as an affirmation of the living. We have learned the essence of the

here and now and the effortless joys of daily life.

 

We seek to create introspective pieces, often meant to evoke serenity, reverence,

meditation--- sculpture that possesses soundness of line, elegance of form.

Often our pieces are primal, stoic, visceral.

 

We sculpt in Stone and cast in Bronze, both for the

unequalled timeless durability of the media, but also to explore and indulge in

their intrinsic beauty and the inherent tension of the elemental forces contained

within both media.

 

We are 50 plus year residents of New Mexico and own and operate our own studio

foundry in the Ponderosa Pine-studded forest of the mountains near

Albuquerque, where we have complete quality control over castings in Bronze

 from start to finish…including complete control over the foundry’s timeline.

Because we own the foundry, there is no limit to the projects we undertake.

 

Our work appears in such public collections as the Albuquerque Botanic Gardens,

Rio Grande Zoo in Albuquerque, the National Park Service

(Salinas National Monument), University of New Mexico,

New Mexico State Printing Facility, Edwards Air Force Base,

and the College of Santa Fe. We have been published in numerous national

and international publications.
