high-heeled blossoms Willie Cole

"With a Heart of Gold"

Willie Cole has often depended on found objects for his sculptural works, so when he recently came upon a supply of several thousand pairs of high-heeled shoes, it was time to go back to one of his original inspirations. Cole went into a secondhand shop and decided on high-heeled shoes because they seemed to be present in abundance. Sole to Soul is a collection of circles which represent lotus blossoms that die and bloom once more, works that stem from Cole's connection to Buddhism.
