Elijah’s cloak represents both opportunity and responsibility or commitment. In a similar way, the cloak sculptures are a collection of pieces that are both soft and hard, flexible and fragile. Some are made with materials such as steel that show traces of action and process, while others are made with materials that were once soft and changing but turned static, such as hardened fabric or cured plaster.
