Description of piece:
A bronze girl and a dog.
Pokey Park creates with the hope that her work will bring a smile to the viewer. “Happiness is a very strong positive force.” Pokey believes that sculpture in general reaches out to people on an emotional level. It addresses two of our senses without even trying; sight and the sense of touch. Everything has serious and whimsical dimensions. Park sees these characteristics in the uninhibited play of wild animals and children’s quiet moments of introspection. “I look for the underlying join in the world to express in my sculptures.”
