“Babel-Not” Side 1

Totems

The latest edition/variation on my free standing sculptures, referred to as “Totems” because they are literally built using blocks stacked one on top of another with a similar result as totem poles.

This piece takes its name from the Tower of Babel in the Bible. As a result of humans building the tower, God brought into existence multiple languages, dividing humans into linguistic groups, unable to understand one another. I see art as a metaphor in the contrast to the Tower of Babel, hence “Babel-Not”. There are so many interpretations of any one piece of art yet all are united in the enjoyment of the art. Instead of separating us, art brings us together.

Plates

These sculptures take me back to my ceramic days … I made a LOT of plates. Something about the broad surface area providing a canvas for all sorts of possibilities.

This piece is substantive and rather imposing. Part of that comes from the depth: it’s over 5″ from back to front so it comes off the wall at you. This was in the first group of pieces I used the “Air-Clay” compound that allows me to carve and work design elements with the flexibility of actual clay (not quite the same, but close). All the turquoise band criss crossing the piece are made of this material. Just getting started with this. They would be fantastic in pairs or triplets in a large residence or restaurant.
