Art Description: The Artist uncovers the human innocence and purity of childhood in her “I Have Seen Happiness” sculpture series. The addition of bunny ears in the girl’s hair not only highlights the fantasies that one associates with childhood but also serves as a symbol of comfort and sentiment. A ghost of a smile graces the young girl’s face as she lifts her head to the sky and closes her eyes as if frozen in a moment of delight. She reminds us that happiness need not always be seen with our eyes, but with our pure and sincere hearts.

This piece is created by paying tribute to Piet Mondrian (1872–1944).
