Like long arms, two vertical copper pipes topped by bronze cast hands emerge from the ground. The hands clutch a short horizontal pipe engraved with words: I yearn to melt into the universe threaded into the fabric of being woven so tightly I am seamless. This literal and figurative "handrail" is intended to be a poetic contemplation. Sculptor, Marlene Hilton Moore is inviting the viewer to pause and consider the words.
Hilton Moore has received awards from the Canada Council for the Arts, The Ontario Arts Council and the Sheila Hugh Mackay Foundation. Her work is in the collection of the Canada Council Art Bank, the Agnes Etherington Art Centre, the University of Winnipeg and many other public and private collections.
