Sculptor Jim Hodges recently debuted his exhibit We are Poems at the Gladstone Gallery in New York City. In this installation, he gathered four large boulders and then removed some of the rocks' original surfaces, replacing the areas with polished, vibrantly colored stainless steel. The four sculptures are then arranged in a rough circular pattern to allow visitors to stand in the center and look at their own reflections. The installation was inspired by Hodges' recent trip to India. He also uses the reflective stones to reference many religious beliefs, from the Japanese Kami to Stonehenge and even Judeo-Christian's use of rocks in religious worship. The exhibit will be on display until December 22.
