“This sculpture is from a series of work that deals with the concept of the four elements, Earth, Water, Fire and wind in our universe on the micro and macro level. It expresses the cycle of life, growth and continuum. The interplay of shape, form, space and colors. These four elements are seen in a variety of shapes and colors as they occur in nature. They are ever changing. As Gibran Khalil said,’ The mission of art is to bring out the unfamiliar to the most familiar’. With this, I would like the viewer to gaze, interact and experience my sculpture.”
