"Heart Stolen" is my sculptural interpretation of a recent photo taken of my wife and me. When I first looked at the photo, I was struck by the fact that I found my wife to be every bit as appealing and mesmerizing as the day I met her--perhaps even more so. I reflected on our initial meeting in our native Colombia and how I was swept up in love as my heart was instantly stolen. What is so amazing to me is the fact that I have never gotten my heart back from her--it remains stolen to this day! I am not referring to that "crazy love" that one experiences in the early stages of courtship. This is a mere illusion of love that gushes forth as we mistakenly assign all of the attributes that we desire in a mate to our new lover--while at the same time, unconsciously overlooking those traits that are less appealing. Although we certainly experienced "crazy love" at first, as most couples do, our love has endured because that infatuation was soon fortified by more enduring relationship builders like appreciation, understanding, and mutual growth. ---Guilloume
