“The Heart of the Matter” – Entrance Installation
Like these sculptures, our hearts get bumped, bruised and battered but somehow still remain full of hope and joy.
After seeing the wake of a series of tornadoes in Dallas, Tom Hoitsma saw the sculptural beauty in some of the wreckage, especial the twisted metal. He collected some of these broken and bent objects and brought them to his studio.
This work, born of the tragedy and loss, is an examination of the impact of the “new normal” we are living in so many areas of our lives, how we are able create joy from unimaginable loss, and the unstoppable resiliency of the human heart.
