ARTIST BIO
Hand Signed : Signature on Each Figure
Condition: Excellent
Purchased from : Artist 2017
Provenance : Artist Statement: I watched on television an interview with a former white supremacist. At age eighteen, he was imprisoned because of his violent anti-racial acts. The interview became very interesting to me as he recounted his reformation while in prison.nnHe told how, prior to his sentence, he vehemently avoided people of other races. Simply: they were to be hated, they were to be abhorred, and they were to be despised. For a time, he was in solitary confinement. Overnight, he was placed in an environment where interaction with men of many colors and from many cultures was a welcome experience. Relationships developed. Biases subsided. Upon release from prison, he found himself free from the prejudices and bondage that previously had tied his hands and soul. Today, he takes a radical stand against such actions, like those found in his own sordid past, by speaking out in public forums. He exposes the thought process and violence of hate groups. He coaches a multi-cultural youth hockey team. This story fascinates me. The prejudice could only occur when there was no interaction. When the associations were built, the barriers were destroyed. Friendships occurred. This idea is what “Circle of Peace” represents; portraying children from all walks of life playing with and enjoying each other. The circle that the children form represents the continuum of humanity. The clasped hands represent the interaction and cooperation, together with compassion and respect, which engenders humanity. Respect for each other's uniqueness bridges the gap between any indifference. I created a space in the circle and it is fascinating to watch children interact with the piece. Quickly, they notice the gap and instantly clasp the two outstretched hands and complete the circle. Each and every person is a vital element in this wonderful circle of life.

Gary Lee Price

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.
