Guilloume Bronze Sculpture Title: “Having Fun”
I was visiting with some old childhood friends one day when during our conversation, I came to the realization that we were enjoying each other’s company and interacting in much the same way we had as kids. From my own experience, I have observed that as we mature into adulthood and beyond, we tend to complicate things and make our lives so complex; even humorless at times. The day-to-day struggles and hardships of life can weigh us down and cause us to lose sight of the simple things that make us happy. When we spend time with old friends, it can sometimes bring us back to the days of our youth when we still knew how to fully engage, be present at the moment, and simply have fun. My recent reunion with my buddies served as a self-reminder to enjoy life at the moment and to not take life so seriously all the time. Of course, it’s important to work hard and be focused on our goals, but it is just as important to hold near our hearts this youthful sense of having fun.
In this piece, the figures sitting together each have their own expression and display their own body language. This demonstration how each one of us occupies and owns our body differently from one day to the next. But when our body relaxes as we embrace the moment and effortlessly partake in having fun.
