Book of Revelations: Prognosis

New wall based sculpture finished.

Our view is framed.  The duality of being is that we seek the security of frameworks in our lives whilst remaining curious about the wider world. Science and art informs and nurtures our quest for expansion to the physical and metaphysical worlds we inhabit.  The magnitude and monumental narrative of the planet ignite wonder yet conversely endow a sense of insignificance to mortal man.

Harnessing the redundant golden frame as a symbolic border, one that demarcates the contents as worthy of being luxuriously wrapped, the sculptures present artefacts dislodged from our focus of possession.  The discarded, retrieved and redefined objects are imbued with metaphor and meaning.

The damaged frame, holding fragmented spaces whilst clinging to the precious cargo, defies the loss and reveres its ostentatious past.  Metaphorically, the frame highlights the paradoxical interconnectedness between destruction and renewal, past and present, consumption and disposal. The fractured structure signals the frailty of the framework as an illusion of security.
