In any language, it's you I love.
Willow Tree is an intimate, personal line of hand carved sculptures. Each represents a quality or sentiment that helps us feel close to others, heal wounds, or treasure relationships to living things. Expression is revealed through gestures only... a tilt of the head, placement of the hands, a turn of the body. Each piece is cast from the artist's (Susan Lordi) original carving and then painted by hand. Susan says, "I try to keep the interpretation of Willow Tree open. I hope this makes it more personal, and allows the viewer to decide its meaning."
“My daughter lives in France, so I’ve travelled there quite a bit in the last few years. I enjoy the art and architecture, the gorgeous countryside, learning the language… It’s truly a culture of romance. So in sculpting this piece about love, I wanted it to have a little more style and mystique… a sophistication, an elegance… I made changes to the dress - extending sleeves and neckline. I love the challenge of starting with a solid, opaque, hard surface, and carving and carving until it looks like embellished lace. Although influenced by France, Je t’aime is a universal piece. The sentiment moves from the universal, to the personal one - on - one. ‘In any language, it’s you I love.'" ~ Susan Lordi
