always near me

Judith Stewart (b.1939)

Always Near Me, 2015

Bronze

Sculpture commissioned in Memory of Melissa Eastham.

Always Near Me is a memorial sculpture. A memorial is an object that serves as a focus for the memory of something, usually a deceased person or a tragic event in history.  Sometimes a memorial sculpture is of the person themselves and other times the artist may use symbolism to represent a special bond or memory.

 

Symbolism is the practice or art of using an object or a word to represent an abstract idea. An action, person, place, word, or object can all have a symbolic meaning.
