Part of Yelitza's signature series of Small Beings. Five figures rest in and above open windows. "The Open Windows sculptures connect the interior of the being with the exterior," says Yelitza. "They open the world, allowing us to understand the meaning of living without haste and accept ourselves as we are - to be and to feel the hope of a future of peace and harmony." The small beings are made of ceramic painted to look like bronze and placed on painted wooden frames. Each piece measures 12" x 8" x 3" and hung 2" apart, totaling 12"x 48" x3".
Mauldin, South Carolina
Born in Venezuela, Yelitza Diaz’s life has been wrapped in the arts since childhood. She founded a gallery with her husband, who is also an artist, and was successful for many years until the crime and corruption in the local government became unbearable. They now live in South Carolina, where she makes art that explores human existentialism and the political and social developments of her native country. Her sculptures are made with ceramic techniques using a minimalist contemporary style. Fun fact: Yelitza designed the town seal for her native Municipio Falcón in Venezuela.

Thanks for a great, thought provoking piece. I see it everyday on my way out of the house. You can start a new day just hanging on, or climbing into it instead!- M Lynch
