Sevio

Sevio

Although many will argue, essentially people are all the same. Conflict arises when the differences are considered. Sevio objectifies race and situation in “World Peace” by using primary colors applied to the same modular mannequins. Initially, the sculpture seems to be a straightforward depiction of universal circumstances. But, upon closer inspection, it is quite complex in the segmented components. Rendered similarly, the pieces hold together, the spectrum of humanity is clear, yet interpretations can become, literally, sketchy. Chalkboard like, points of view are represented in a game-like, childish toy, rendition of complexity. The contrast between the seriousness of the mission, and the lyrical treatment of relationships, indicates that to attain such a lofty goal means understanding the range of interpretations. From cooperation and harmony, to exploring the factors that divide people and prevent such harmony, this deceptively whimsical piece is very serious.

Curious is a row of buttons on the edge of the platform forming the sculpture’s base. Does this imply there is a key to understanding each kind of person? Contrast differences with similarities while contemplating peace and conflict.
