Figs and Urns is comprised of 24 cast crystal spears and 24-cast crystal tear drop formations that radiate outwards in rings to give the configuration of light rays being emitted from the sun. Each solid crystal piece contains the recessed details of spherical shapes that suggest the silhouettes of figs and urns, entities that are symbolic of life and death. The cycle of life is echoed in the configuration of the circle, the spokes of a wheel, and the energy given from the sun itself, our primary energy source.

The Dominant Sophia, Agnes Varis Art Center, Brooklyn, NY

For the exhibition The Dominant Sophia, I have created a series of sculptural objects and wall mounted installations that function as metaphors for the human condition. Central to the exhibition is a three-dimensional ‘rose window,’ reminiscent of the round church windows of 17th Century France. Comprised of individually cast forms in clear lead crystal, each segment within the multi-faceted installation will contain the recessed detail of forms taken from nature.

The rose window has been referred to as the ‘key to ones soul,’ its structure and visual iconography bringing order out of chaos and giving form to the intangible. Its purpose was to illuminate and impress viewers with god's light in an age where worshipers counted little as individuals but were devoted to an afterlife that would bring meaning to their existence after death if they followed that light.

Today our conception of the self has altered and in The Dominant Sophia, I seek to "reflect" this. We do not conceive of ourselves as empty vessels that will be rewarded after death but instead understand ourselves as a complex construct of fragments of experiences held together in shared linguistic space where our identities get formed in myriads of "reflections" in the social arena; this new rose window expresses this condition.
