new work: “Man of La Mancha”

David M. Versluis
Untitled on Four Legs / Feet
Wire and Steel
26"H x 17"W x 9"D

Artist Statement:
This whimsical sculptural piece made of wire and steel uses all metallic materials and basic metal-working skills to suggest the breastplate and shield of the invincible “Man of La Mancha”.

This piece was selected for recognition for the Juried Exhibit—Artists’ Showcase: Orange City Arts Council’s 2014 Regional Exhibition, February 14–22 at the Northwestern College DeWitt Theatre Arts Center in Orange City, Iowa. The show ran concurrently with the Northwestern College musical production of “Man of La Mancha.” Orange City Arts Council promotions stated, “Artworks are related to the themes in de Cervantes’ tale of Don Quixote: from madness and idealism to the fine line between illusion and reality.”
