View outdoor ‘Love’ sculpture at Arts Council

What does modern love look like? Find out now through Oct. 30 at the Greenwich Arts Council where contemporary Cuban artist Esterio Segura has installed his hanging outdoor sculpture “Goodbye My Love.”

Goodbye My Love is a sculpture installation of three fiberglass planes, shaped into red painted and heart-shaped bodies.

The installation was specially adapted for the space outside the Greenwich Arts Council from a larger, recent showing of the works at Times Square in New York City.

Mr. Segura’s concept for the sculptures is to reference the love that is commonly found in contemporary relationships which often requires people to be separated from one another.

As the artist stated, his work emphasizes “the social and political repercussions of migration, banishment and separation among others. In this case, Goodbye My Love uses these issues as well as memories to offer an optimistic view pointing to the importance of good communication and the interaction of the cultures that have caused these circumstances.”

The planes can symbolize departure and allude to the experience of farewell — one of the most universal and common of human interactions.
