Nurturance is a smooth, abstract sculpture made up of rounded organic forms. The work conveys a sense of circular motion while simultaneously drawing the viewer’s eye into the void at the center. According to Michael Orgel, Nurturance represents two connected figures, one grounded and one floating in a spiritual realm. Together they symbolize the cycle of life and death.
