The Beloved: A Ceramic Sculpture
This featured ceramic sculpture, The Beloved, is about the conscious and unconscious aspects of being human and also about the relationship which exists between the two.
The conscious self longs to unravel the mystery within. In my case this inner self is the gateway to the Universe, the Portal to the longed for unknown; However, the unconscious is far from passive and pushes from below altering the course of the entire being. Like it or not, these two distinct energies struggle for control unseen by the self.
Waking up to the understanding that the nature of the human being is complex, multi faceted and also Buddha Like all at once is difficult and once learnt can be forgotten.
Extraordinarily, the process of creating from ceramic material itself has lead me deep into myself, connecting these two diametrically different energies inherent in the human being to gain more insights, which in turn find themselve embedded in further ceramic figurative sculpture..
