Statement: As humanity evolves, our perspective of the world, our universe and ourselves changes. The recent pictures of a black hole led me to NASA’s website and the fascinating “worlds” beyond our own. As our technology grows and we learn more about our place in the universe, so should our humility and our awe for the universe.

One day in the studio, two heads I had sculpted arranged themselves in such a way on my work table, that I felt they seemed to express love for one another. At that moment I thought of how often societal structures attempt to separate us from those we love, perhaps due to perceived notions of gender, race, or class. This inspired me to create the two severely geometric triangles to house each figure. I placed them close together to demonstrate both the tension of their imposed separation, and the enduring tenderness of their love.

As I was working on this piece, I realized that it reflects the times quite well… the gap in the front separating the two faces looking at one another with some trepidation, the Japanese symbol for compassion in the seal between them… the other faces on the right and left…one in deep agony, the other oblivious to suffering, and finally the one on the back in meditation, holding the light for all.
