 Congleton, Greg 

Artist's Inspiration:

Marriage

We are told to �...leave your parents, cleave to your spouse, and become one flesh�.

(Gen. 2:24)

We like the part about becoming one flesh but getting it in the right sequence with exclusivity is another matter. The landscape is cluttered with broken families and the evidence of ignoring this advice. The older couple in the piece are also the younger couple etched into the back side 50 years apart. She�s wearing the same ring. They have weathered through the years but bear the patina of joy, love, and tenderness that a solid underpinning provides. The triangular bronze base has 2 straight sides and 1 curved. The first represents the young man & woman used to going in their own directions. The latter represents the bending each must do over time to meet the other�s needs.
