Moonglow Design Art Gallery unveiled sculptor Lorenzo Foncerrada’s latest (and wildest) effort “Big Loie,” which debuted Jan. 25, 2014 during a reception at the gallery, 5763 La Jolla Blvd. in Bird Rock. The larger-than-life statue is a fitting tribute to American dancer Loie Fuller, who took 1890s Paris by storm. A modern dance pioneer, Fuller often used grand silks and light effects in performances to dramatize her movements. The artist is asking $10,000 for the work; motorists and pedestrians can enjoy it for free until it’s sold.

    Please remove this hideous, vulgar statue. It’s awful. Tacky. Can’t believe the good people of Bird Rock are tolerating this eyesore. Put it in some warehouse, out of view. Why should we suffer someone’s idea of art?

      Why should we suffer your selfish and ignorant view of the world? Anything else you’d like to unilaterally demand be removed from your sight?

        The artist credentials are impecable. His father introduced Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo at art shcool in Mexico City and he watched San Diego master Donal Hoard as a child. He has won many award for his work and was honored on HG TV’s Modern Masters.for a lifetime of wood sculpture. This piece is a departure from his norm, but is still the work of a master and La Jolla should be honored for being able to view it before it goea on to the accolades of the world!!!!!

    She’s fabulous! She’s outrageous! She’s a traffic calmer as she makes you slow down and take a look and say “What the f***!” So nice that “Bill” has such a strong response to her – that means she is doing her job as Art! Talk about her, complain about her, scream about her, but you can’t ignore her. I LOVE it!

    Lorenzo Foncerrada, the artist, has impeccable credentials. He has appeared on HGTV’s Modern Masters Series for a lifetime of wood sculpture.
    His father introduced Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo at art school in Mexico City and he grew up under the tutelage of Donal Hord, the scultptor who is famous for the sculpture, “Our Lady of the Waters,” at the San Diego County Administration Building. Foncerrada is an award-winning sculptor and designer. La Jolla is honored to have “Big Loie” in temporary residence before she goes on to the accolades of the world!
