Sam Wickey Sculptures
Sculptor, Sam Wickey was born and raised Amish. Sam Wickey's Angel Series is inspired by a world message of peace and love, and is also a celebration of one man's struggle from fear to freedom. Inspired from childhood struggle and imagination, Wickey has perfected the art of sculpting without any formal training. Wickey's work has been noted as gifted, inspired and nothing short of miraculous. He has made public appearances at Terbush Gallery in Sedona, Arizona for "Illusions" and "Exodus," the first two of his Angel Series. "Illusions" represents the battle within man's own mind and his illusions of truth. "Exodus" represents a balanced dance between higher consciousness and human vulnerability. His two most recent Angel Sculptures are called "One Love" and "Home." Wickey's "One Love" Sculpture is a celebration of spirit and Love. "Home" is a sculpture embodying a message of Love and Peace for all. Sam's Angel Series and other commissioned sculptures have been shown for 3 consecutive years at the Loveland Art Show in Loveland, CO. His Angel Series was shown in Las Vegas at the Art Expo in September 2008.
