The first part of the exhibit featured Sawaya's reproductions of famous works of art, in two dimensional and three dimensional interpretations made entirely out of Legos.
The second part of the exhibit focused more on human figures, in primary colors, and explored the boundaries of surface/interior, anthropomorphizing Sawaya's emotions. I loved the play of color and figure, and was particularly moved by this one, entitled, "grasp."
For more than five years in the early 2000s, Sawaya had raced through the fast-paced lifestyle of a corporate lawyer in New York City. But he grew weary of the long hours, the paperwork, the conference calls, all meaning nothing to him.
About this particular sculpture, Sawaya writes: "No matter where your heart wants to lead you, there will be hands that try to hold you back. Life's challenge is to find the strength to break free."
From what have you broken free? What still holds you back?
