Art in The Gardens

Coming this July - A Journey of Growth and Transformation

Colorado artist Jodie Bliss will be bringing her metalworking talent to the Gardens on Spring Creek this July with a series of sculptures depicting stages of growth and transformation.

About the Artist: 

Jodie Bliss is the owner of Bliss Studio in Monument, Colorado.  She holds a Master's of Fine Arts degree in fine art sculpture, as well as a Bachelor's of Fine Arts creative writing. With more than 20 years of metalworking experience, Jodie’s passion for studies in the psychology, cultural anthropology and wonders of the natural world have led her down many paths and through various obsessions with everything - from the role of masking in tribal cultures and modern-day subcultures, to the role of myth in the human experience and beyond. 

Jodie and her team at Bliss Studio create everything from custom one-of-a-kind gates, railings, doors, furniture and chandeliers to custom public art pieces for municipalities, arts programs, corporate clients, architects, builders and private clients.

About the Series:

This installation takes the viewer on a journey through a series of sculptures depicting the stages of growth and transformation. Each piece speaks to a different stage of this process - including the conception of an idea or intention to choosing the path, opening up, taking the leap, falling, achieving forward motion, finding gratitude, standing strong in your transformation and finally sharing this boon with the universe. 

The internal spiritual journey depicted in this exhibit parallels the growth of a seed both metaphorically and through the use of symbolism. From a little seed pod full of limitless possibility, through the stages of breaking free from the shell, growing, leafing, budding, blossoming and finally spreading its own seeds.
