The Space Between Us

In many ways, the title "The Space Between Us" says it all.  Though non-objective, the sculpture is easy to relate to because it is all about our relationships -- our commonalities, our differences -- and how, when looked at from different perspectives, that relationship can change. 

The original “The Space Between Us” was created from a single block of Pink Portuguese marble. Sohocki split the piece in two vertically with one piece flipped end-to-end. The “two from one” nature of the sculpture represents the fact that we all come from the same “stone” or source. There may seem to be many differences but, if you look carefully, you’ll also see many complementary aspects and similarities. Now more than ever, it’s important to consider relationships, whether within our families, our communities, or among nations, and ultimately realize that we all have a common origin and bond. Sohocki left some of the natural surface where he split the pieces, which means that if they are flipped, they could actually be rejoined at that initial separation, representing our infinite connection.

Other aspects of the sculpture are the differences in size of the two forms, yet they maintain similar and complementary variations in texture, form, and line. This is just as in any relationship where there are similarities and differences that can change depending upon how they are perceived or experienced over time and space.

The negative space between the two forms is also essential to understanding the sculpture. “The Space Between Us” reflects the Zen principle that it is not just the leaves of a tree that give the tree its beauty. It is also the space between the leaves that need to be understood and admired.

Therefore, both of the forms and the space between them somehow seem to capture certain fundamental aspects of relationships.

This bronze two-piece sculpture is available in two heights:  81" / 75"  and 28" / 25" 

Free Flow

In creating "Free Flow," Sohocki reflected on the physical activities of Free Running or Parkour (par-KOOR). They are forms of extreme movement and gymnastics whereby participants aim to overcome obstacles in their environment to move from one point to another gracefully and efficiently without any special equipment.
Obstacles are transformed into thrilling challenges and opportunities for self-expression. Participants jump, run, scale, flip, drop and swing over whatever obstacles are present in the environment such as walls, rocks, railings, ledges, benches and rooftops.

The absolute nirvana of Parkour -- where a participant overcomes obstacles and moves at an almost fluid state directly and efficently over his or her surroundings -- is called "Free Flow."

This bronze sculpture is available in both 10 and 2 foot sizes and can be mounted either standing up or leaping.



Sun Dance

“Sun Dance” is an elegant and airy form evoking movement and spirit. This powerful, yet graceful sculpture reaches toward the sky in a “sun dance.” It evokes images of the sun, motion, and flight. It has been described as having “a calming, almost meditative effect.”

This bronze sculpture is available in both 8 foot and 36" sizes.


Double Dancer

“Double Dancer” attracts and invites the viewers’ eyes and imagination. A man and a woman merge into one through dance, creating a sense of joy, dance, music and, perhaps most importantly, unity.

The intriguing “Double Dancer” design always attracts attention and prompts discussion about the images portrayed.

This bronze sculpture is available in two heights: 7 1/2 feet and 34".




“Contemplation” suggests a woman sitting on a rock in a contemplative pose. On the other side of the piece, the same image exists, but in a more abstract and cubist form.

The more abstract side reflects influences from my teaching and travel in Egypt.

“Contemplation” is a tranquil image of the quiet reflection so helpful in life and art, particularly when times are hectic and difficult.

The original for “Contemplation” was carved from Travertine marble. The rock surface on which the woman sits is from the natural surface of the rough quarried marble.

This bronze sculpture is available in a 64" monumental size and a 32" size.


Endangered Grace 

“Endangered Grace” is a strong, graceful sculpture with clean, simple lines that suggest a heron or crane. 

The piece reflects Dennis' concern that “grace” is vanishing from our fast-paced society. When we encounter grace, whether in people, wildlife, architecture or art, it captures our attention and inspires our admiration.  

“Endangered Grace” is popular with admirers of both realist as well as abstract art.  The piece was the first abstract sculpture chosen for the Benson Sculpture Park in Loveland, Colorado.

"Endangered Grace" is available in 16-foot, 6.5-foot, and 3.5-foot sizes.
