This sculpture is crafted from a white composite material by Joan Strauss Carl. This art piece, whose main influence is abstract expressionism, prompts the viewer to explore the interplay between form and expression.

If you spend every day a little moment staring at this stunning unfinished sculpture, you will discover little by little the incredibly strong work of Strauss, which can express in the same sculpture following the angle you look at it, the strength, softness, and movement. Allow your gaze to wander, uncover more of its versatile character, then witness the interplay of forces within this piece. Such is the marvel of this creation, that every perspective yields a facet of freedom's expression. Like the chronicle of a liberated soul, this sculpture tells a tale, its form a testament to the spirit of an independent woman.

Joan Strauss Carl was a Los Angeles artist, teacher, and humanitarian activist. She was a past president of the Los Angeles Art Association and has left a formidable body of her work and commissions in private collections, museums, and houses of worship. She was a prolific sculptor and painter. After studying art in Cleveland and at the Art Institute of Chicago, she travelled West. Her decision had proved smart as she quickly had six one-man shows and was consistently accepted in the very important invitational, juried exhibitions from San Francisco to San Diego. A quote from her exhibition: Joan Carl – One-Man Sculpture Show. “My work is my way of life. It is a constant search and examination and questioning of ideas as well as form and substance, and yet each new creation is a re-affirmation of respect and love of humanity and life.” Joan was represented by Paideia Gallery in Los Angeles and resided in Sherman Oaks, California for many years. As a sculptor, she worked in many mediums, including bronze, terracotta, stone, and wood.
