I started this series of wall hung sculptures during the 2020 pandemic.
Because of the rapid and vast spread of COVID 19 it was obvious just how connected we all are in the world. This global situation guided me to
construct a complex interwoven system of various physical elements in size, material and color joined in a multitude of points metaphorically representing the dynamics and circuitry of life.
I take inspiration by the ancient Chinese Yin and Yang symbol whereby
contrary forces may actually be complementary, interconnected and
interdependent. I also delight in the Buddhist mandalas and its representation of focal energies and metaphysical wholeness. Akin to these powerful symbols I want the viewer to take a visual journey meandering in and out and around the sculpture.
