Daniel Lai


Bob the Leo! Lion's face in blue.

Materials: Front - shattered glass in resin; back - acrylic on canvas with 4 chrome metal stand-offs. Front panel is transparent (please see photos).

Artwork size: 24" x 24" x about 3" Thick. Space between artwork and white panel is about 1".

Artist statement: I often thought about the meaning of being broken. Then, I came upon the epiphany that there is an upward reincarnation from brokenness. Consider the metaphors “breaking through” and “shattering the glass ceiling.” At every moment of shattered dreams throughout my life I embarked on a journey that was filled with beauty and betterment. Brokenness is essential for growth; and it is therefore beautiful. The symbolic actions of shattering glass and transforming it into art remind me of a wise meme: it's the brokenness that opens your mind.

The item will be shipped unmounted for safety during shipping. Assemblage is simple- just align the holes and screw the knob back on (please see example in the last photo).

Signature and date are in the lower right corner. Ready to hang; wire at the back.

Thanks for looking.
