About Artist:

Kyle Wilkerson is a North Georgia based metal sculpture artist who in less than a year has gone from your ‘average joe’ to an up-and-coming artist in the metal smithing community. He is largely self-taught and is making leaps and bounds with his skills on every new project he undertakes. The most recent of these projects is Project Harmony. The idea for Harmony came to Wilkerson while he was visiting a Buddhist temple to prepare for his first ever TV appearance. He entered a flow state during meditation and was able to connect with the environment around him in ways that he had never experienced before. He was struck by the need to create a piece of art that represented the balance in our lives and how we must all maintain it to achieve perfect happiness. This project was forged from the depths of Wilkersons sorrow and a splash of life was added by a collaborating painter by the name of Casidy Byrum, Byrum is studying for her Bachelors in Art History and was completely responsible for every aspect of painting including adding a clear coat to ensure this piece is not only beautiful but stays beautiful 

 

About Artwork:

Wilkerson started with the Yin-Yang symbol represented by the two lilies, one black and one white, symbolizing the natural organization of opposing energies in the world. Additionally, the lilies represent fertility and beauty which emphasizes the cyclical nature of our lives, the cycle of death and rebirth. The molecules of dopamine and serotonin are also represented which were created using recycled bike chain. These two chemicals are essential to happiness and must be in perfect balance for one to have good mental health. The collaborating artist Casidy Byrum, who painted this sculpture, made the decision to paint the molecules in the colors that that best induce them, pink is the best for dopamine and yellow for serotonin. Byrum also made the decision to pair those colors with their contrasts to further tie into the concept of opposites and balance in the piece. Wilkerson states that “Though we might not all be perfect at the very least we understand that our happiness and misery all comes down to the same two chemicals and I think there is harmony in that” every single one of us humans all share in this experience no matter how different we may appear or how opposing our lives may seem; we are all connected by this in harmony. Wilkerson even drew meaning from the bike chain itself, the strength and connection of the chain represents the bond of all energies, creatures, and emotions. Not only was the chain used to create the molecules but also it is the framework that supports the piece making it both the physical and representational backbone of Project Harmony. Wilkerson has masterfully created a piece of art that one can stand in front of for hours drawing more and more meaning from as they take it in and fully digest its complexities or they could simply enjoy it for its beauty and nothing more. By his own admission Wilkerson has said he “wants it to be as simple or as complicated as the viewer makes it out to be” and while one certainly could give it no more than a glance, they would be missing out on a truly complex and meaningful experience

.

Wilkerson is a strong believer in giving back to the community and often chooses a charitable cause to partner with on his major projects. For this project he has chosen The National Alliance to End Homelessness which is a charitable organization that fights the cause of homelessness at its source as well as directly provides aid to those in need. Half of all the proceeds earned from Project Harmony will be directly donated to the NATEH.
