“By Another Ocean III” is part of a long series of works exploring the way in which a single form can evoke compressed complexity through linear patterns.
The carved ‘loops’ are concentric and imply the possibility for division or extension if they were to unravel and open up.
The most potent areas of expression in a sculpture can be where one form abuts and touches another which happens over the entire surface of this piece.
The carving is understated and my hope is that its presence is greater than its physical dimensions through a sense of compressed potential energy, like a seed.
