This Week's Featured Art Work - Jerry Atkins - August 9, 2009

Have you ever had one of those days when you felt like a slave to someone or something? Perhaps a slave to a situation or an emotion. Did you feel that you couldn't break free and be yourself? Perhaps you couldn't even find yourself. Did you feel that you were looking out at a life that you wanted to live, but something held you back, something kept you from experiencing the full expression of yourself.

Meet Jerry Atkins. Take a look at his Self-Portrait. The figure in this piece is jailed, held back by the bars of his small cell. The figure is peering out between the bars, eager to put the jail behind him, eager for a momentary sense of escape.

elf-Portrait is a powerful sculpture that can speak to life's varied situations and emotions.

Self-Portrait is a cast bronze sculpture, 18" by 50" by 14", available from Still Point Art Gallery for $40,000. Contact Christine Cote by email or by phone 207.837.5760.
