Welcome to Simply ART Maungaturoto’s – Artist of the Month and this month has us featuring one of our own – local artist/sculptor GINNY TOD.
Ginny, a member of the Baha’i Faith, believes that our purpose in life is to grow and develop spiritually, both individually and collectively. Her work represents aspects of the spiritual journey. Ginny also has plans for a Gallery which is in the early stages of becoming a reality.
When Ginny closed her eyes and saw an image of a bird looking skyward, she had no idea that she was about to embark on a process that would take many years to complete and involve a fundamental shift in her whole way of thinking. Having set aside her love of sculpture after leaving Art School in 1979, she kept putting the image aside. When she could resist it no longer, she dug some clay from a cattle dam at the bottom of her rural property and began her search to reproduce the image.
GINNY TOD BRONZE’S
A beautifully crafted solid bronze sculpture with a dark granite patina. It has angled lines and curvaceous features. The Calling is an indoor or outdoor sculpture. However, if it is placed outside its patina may be affected by the elements. The Calling represents the voice of the soul as it reaches beyond the heavens to it’s Beloved. The Calling is 35cms tall.
An exquisite and uplifting sculpture crafted in solid bronze with a forest green patina. It has stunning design features and beautifully detailed artwork. Descent is an indoor or outdoor sculpture. However, if it is placed outside, its patina may be affected by the elements. Descent represents the journey the Holy Souls (Abraham, Moses, Zoroaster, Krishna, Buddha, Christ, Muhammad and Baha’u’llah) have made in order to connect with the seeker (the spirit who has called out). Descent is 1.05 metres tall.
An elegant bronze sculpture with a marble effect patina. The patina has been carefully removed from the top of the sculpture to reveal the beautiful bronze head. Reveal is an indoor sculpture as the patina is delicate and may be damaged if the sculpture is put outside. Reveal represents the process the soul goes through once the connection with the Holy Soul has been made. Reveal is 78cms tall.
