Magic Circle

Magic Circle Variation No5 (90x90x9cms hand and lasercut paper)

The circle here evokes on the one hand a petri dish and on the other a mandala, two disparate references fused by the process of art. The motifs inside the circle reference coral, moss, bacteria, mold, radiolaria....Ultimately the sculpture is a work of pure imagination that transcends a simple mimetic reading but which reminds us nonetheless of nature's fragility and beautiful intricacy.
