ARTIST BIO
Hand Signed : Signature on Base
Condition: Excellent
Purchased from : Artist 2017
Provenance : Artist Statement: Two Native American Indians are struggling on the face of a jagged cliff. The one above reaches out and extends himself, grasping for the one below. The one below looks up and also reaches out to receive the hand of safety and strength. Climbing the mountain of life we learn, grow and, hopefully, increase in wisdom. As we continue the trek, we realize it is not just about ourselves. It is then that we pause, turn around, and reach out our hand in assistance to those who can benefit from out travels. This sculpture epitomizes the struggle to overcome opposition and difficult personal challenges and the absolute need we have for others to reach out, bring us in and raise us up. Having grown up in the West and being a small part Cherokee, I’ve always had an affinity for capturing the spirit of my forefathers. I have aspired to create pieces that have depth. I have wanted to portray individuals of grace, strength, and beauty. Several years prior to creating this piece, I went through a series of personal crises. It was a very difficult time for me and yet, as always, I was taken care of. Several close friends reached out and lifted me up in my hour of need. While creating this sculpture, I reached within. I relied on my own experiences, ones that showed me that people really do care and that our true friends are those who do not judge or shun, but rather reach out and bring us in. These are the individuals with complete grace, absolute strength, and true beauty. The letters I’ve received from people describing how a piece has inspired or lifted them are many. The ones describing ‘The Ascent’ are the most numerous and most touching.

Art Brokerage: Gary Lee Price American Sculptor: B. 1955. Literally, thousands of Gary Lee Price sculptures are in public and private collections throughout the world. One of the largest libraries in the world, the Hong Kong Central Library, is graced by the recent acquisition of twelve Gary Lee Price life-size bronze sculptures. The 11-foot Celebration which features joyous children celebrating life, was first unveiled in Surrey, England.The most recent installation is located at the entrance of the corporate headquarters for NuSkin International in Provo, Utah. The interaction-of-hands theme has been an important aspect of his work as reflected in other pieces such as Synergy, Helping Hand, Ascent, Circle of Peace and Circle of Friends. Uplifting others, helping others and joining hands with others in brotherhood and sisterhood are essential parts of the life of Gary Lee Price. Perhaps the unexpected and tragic loss of his parents at age six anchored within him the importance of enduring and positive relationships and of the need to see and depict humanity in a positive light and on an upward journey.
