John Szabo with Dew Drop

John Szabo with Dew Drop

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."

--John Szebo

 

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."
