besides all the obvious ‘plastic’ reasons, educated art world check list – fulfilled . . .
this piece really provoked, and thrilled me – on first glance.
provoked my imagination, and kidnapped my earth-bound existence and took me to another dimension . . at first sight . . might be the better way to say it.
the very definition of trans-formational . . this piece is so radical, you just want to pick it up by its weight lifter’s heart, and fling it outward with strong arm, no doubt – right back – at the unknown but magical universe – from which it sprung !!
this is the kind of piece that wherever it finds itself, and it looks mighty easy to set down, anywhere – another beautiful feather in its multi-feathered cap, that says: things are NOT what they seem. there is more to life, to existence, to life, to magic, to stones, to bones, to light . . . than we can ever imagine.
it is a resting bowl of concrete that contains a fire of . . crystal.
yep, that good.
