Installed April 2023
Welded Steel painted with bronze patina

This sculpture - All I Have - represents the dreamer, the hopeful and hard working. As beings we are made up of the same anatomical components however, underneath all of that we are a being of our lived experiences, backgrounds and memories.
This tall figure, is a human with physical protrusions, symbolizing the one-of-a-kind experiences and challenges faced, that make us who we are today. This is a reminder of life's irregularities and our hope to achieve a better and brighter future.
