Work in progress...

Working from a expressionistic perspective I hold a single question in my mind while creating my figurative sculptures...."What is it in YOU that is unbreakable?"

These figures part auto-bigraphical as well as deeply influenced by my Buddhist pilgrimages with Roshi Joan Halifax to Nepal and the beautiful and resilient indigenous people have inspired this latest body of work.  These pieces are a territory of iconic visioning of resiliency and the mystical.  A dialogue between the emerging vulnerable self and an unbreakable spiritual stillness.  The juxtaposition of abstract and representational further points to that dialectical stance.

After a pilgrimage to Nepal with Roshi Joan Halifax, and the travails of that trek I have been pondering the direction of a new body of work..........will post the process and the thought behind it soon. Namaste and deep bow
