This is a striking work of modern sculpture by Southern California widely exhibited and acclaimed contemporary artist ELLIE RILEY. Measuring approximately 43" in height by 23" in the other dimensions, it is impressively large and very eye-catching due to its electric blue paint and dramatic shape. The artist has incised her name into the base, and the title "Reaching High" nearby with a copyright symbol and the date. The work casts very interesting shadows, which I have tried to include in some of the images. Riley has an interesting website showing some of her paintings and sculptures, with an impressive list of gallery and museum exhibitions, many of them outside of the state of California. Her sculptures are in public places in Lancaster, Palm Desert and elsewhere; so this is clearly suitable for display outdoors if desired. It is in excellent condition and quite heavy for its size. See the net for more on the artist's statement and other examples of her works. Shipping could be complicated and/or expensive so ideally I would like to find a Southern California buyer who could pick this up----but if you are out of the area, professional packing could likely be arranged.
