About the Artwork
This piece depicts different means of communication, both human and electronic, ancient and modern. The faces around the outside play the game of secret. One whispers the secret to the next. When the last person repeats the secret, it is always much changed.
About the Artist
Evelyn Rosenberg studied art and printmaking in Israel and England. She earned her MFA from the University of New Mexico. She considered her prime medium as sculpture and pioneered the technique of Detonography. This technique uses a controlled explosion that molds the metal, resulting in a lightweight bas-relief sculpture with reflective luster and texture. She is credited with over 40 public art pieces in the United States and has won numerous awards including the New Mexico Governor’s Award of Excellence in the Arts.
“I like the idea of taking a destructive force and using it to make something that I think is beautiful. I find it to be a very feminine expression, like giving birth. You take a very messy, chaotic, and frightening process and come out with a marvelous result.”
- Evelyn Rosenberg
