A Public Display of “Love”

Posted on 29 August 2014

Love for web

By Stephen J. Kotz

“LOVE,” a sculpture by Dorothy Frankel of Noyac, will be installed in front of the Coronado Public Library in Coronado, California.

The sculpture depicts four hands spelling out the word love in sign language and is one in the series Visual Poetry, which Ms. Frankel has described as a tribute to the inherent emotions that unite us, exalt us, and show us our commonality.

In the project, hands are used to both invite and challenge audiences to contemplate, as wordlessly as the spectacles they view, our intrinsic bonds. Like a heartbeat with its minimal silence, Virtual Poetry seeks to rouse our better angels, as we connect day to day, heart to heart, spirit to spirit, to the future, she said in  release.

Ms. Frankel began creating  the series in 1997 as an ongoing body of work that draws from American Sign Language, yoga, and universal forms. Connection, L.O.V.E., I Love You, Inner Peace, Best Friends and Mudra Fountain are central pieces of the collection.

“LOVE” has been in New York City Public Art, Carl Schutz Park, and Peace Arch Park in Blaine, Washington, and other locations. Her work is in many private and public collections. Her sculpture, “Writers Group,” is currently on view at the Bay Street Theater.
