Gifts like you've never seen, Greg Londrigan's latest sculpture sheds new light on the spirit of giving
Standing just over 8 feet tall the sculpture was hand fabricated in Greg’s studio, which is located in Grand Blanc, MI.
GRAND BLANC, MI.- An Artist’s tribute to the world is the complexity of the inner self and his fight to gift a personal vision. A person’s gift to the world is one of generosity and love. To be received by all is it’s own reward.

If giving is receiving and receiving is giving then artist Greg Londrigan has certainly been given the gift of sculpture. His latest piece entitled “To: You, From: Me – To: Me, From: You” literally envelops this adage. With a simple complexness the latest sculpture sheds new light on the spirit of giving and receiving.

In a surprising moment Greg captures the weightless suspension of two “gifts” or “presents” connected by a dance of intertwined ribbons. With vibrant red ribbons wrapping around pure white gifts attached to a cylindrical base he some how bends the perception of the normal gift giving tradition.

Greg Londrigan is known for his clean flowing metal sculptures that could easily be overlooked without knowing the details of the fabrication techniques. Many of his pieces capture movement in time and embrace organic natural forms.

Standing just over 8 feet tall the sculpture was hand fabricated in Greg’s studio, which is located in Grand Blanc, MI. “This was by far my most complex sculpture to date” Greg says, “what started out as a simple idea of suspending two boxes grew into the piece you see today. After the holidays the design changed from simple boxes to the idea of presents. It was the reactions from my son that inspired the present idea. Seeing his joy opening gifts was priceless. In return, what I received, was the speechless contentment and a heart filled with happiness.”

This amazing sculpture captures the generosity and love that we all feel giving gifts, as well as, receiving them. “To: You, From: Me – To: Me, From: You” dances around the timeless joy that embraces the many special moments of our lives. The sculpture projects vibrancy, energy, and wandering. But what the wandering truth really lies behind is what everyone else is dying to know, and that is, “What’s in the gifts?”

Greg Londrigan is a sculptor who specializes in abstract and functional metal sculpture.
