The Fragility of Beauty

Gabriel Moreno
29.5" x 15.75" x 9.5" / 74.9 x 40cm x 24.1cm
Multi-dimensional sculpture cast in bronze Edition of 2/8

This sculpture is about ephemeral. The many dates shown on the sculpture are those of real people, from celebrities such as Marilyn Monroe, James Dean, Kurt Cobain, and also people he knows personally who have died young, all of whom have died in the prime of their life with their beauty still intact. It is about how fragile beauty is, and how it can be so temporary and can disappear in a short space of time. Other dates are from people who lived a very long life, and over that time have been able to see their beauty fade. The tattoo of the moth you see on the back of the neck represents death and reinvention, the moth is a soft and fragile creature which has such a short life span. It is seen as a symbol of divinity and the afterlife in many religious and cultural stories. The tattoos on the face are parts of the mask of death from the Mexican culture.
