Approaching what looks like a spray of stones from a distance, one finds small somnolent faces seemingly floating in space.
Artist Ledelle Moe created "Congregation" from the combination of concrete and local sand. In this way, each head takes on the color of the region and country it comes from. To first see them, one may feel an ancient quality in the air, something recovered from a lost period, but in truth the viewer will delight in discovering present day daily practice was behind this creation.
Alone one head may be a curious object, but together the eye bounces between them and feels a part of something larger.
This work made 2005-2008 was photographed at the North Carolina Art Museum in Raleigh.
