Using formal devices and tropes of Modernist, Eastern and metaphysical dialogues with the infinite, this work explores the fragmented nature of contemporary culture and spiritual identity. Constructed primarily from papier-mâché and painted paper, the sculptures are as temporal as the subjects they address. Collectively the work points to confusing, and uncertain but inevitable relationships with the infinite.
