With bold, flat color and convoluted, suspended forms, Better Angels recalls natural forms as well as eliciting joy and grace. The sculptural pieces hover overhead, drawing our attention upward. Better Angels is a reference to Lincoln’s famous speech asking us to aspire to kindness and respect, a figurative higher plane of being in the world.
