The first sculptures in the "Ephemeral Nature" series are titled "Dew Drops"
inspired by dew drops observed and photographed on early morning walks in Crystal Cove, a rustic nature preserve overlooking the Pacific Ocean, near Szabo's home in Newport Beach. I go with the flow and natural organic lines of the object that speaks to you.
I strive to have the sculptures capture the ephemeral and communicate something expressed by one of my favorite poets, William Blake (1757-1827) in his poem Arguries of Innocence.
"To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour."
SAATCHI ART said of his new sculptures:
"Dew Drops, part of Szabo's new Ephemeral Nature Series of sculptures
are impossible not to touch, like shiny color-coated candies, these layers upon layers of polished resin are reminiscent of the work of Jeff Koons or Anish Kapoor, yet unique in how they capture something ephemeral from nature; beautiful, seductive and sensuous."
