In The Space Within, Buds, by Gillian Christy the house-shaped sculpture embraces leaves caught in a continuous spiraling loop. They convey a confluence of energy and form a connection between home and one's surroundings. The delicacy of the composition come alive as the viewer moves around the piece, at times seeing the form solid and then in an instant seeing it as a fragile silhouette barely able to stand. This transition might suggest the temporal nature of a solid home in our modern times.
