Sunny Ring was dedicated during Art Basel 2014 as a permanent installation at the mouth of the Miami River and Biscayne Bay in downtown Miami, FL. Sunny ring is a tribute to the delicate balance of love, life, and responsibility. “Sunny” is the artist’s wife, the circular form represents life and the ceremonial ring of marriage, and the exposed bolts represent the daily work that goes into holding such a delicate relationship together. As with all lugufelo art, the piece was designed to withstand corrosion caused by its proximity to the saltwater, as well as potential hurricane winds.
