Horizon is the title of this body of work, inspired by natural tranquility and the human experience of nature. It is a series of conceptual sculptures reflecting nature’s discovery and life’s reality. Our observation of the horizon is of a flattened line that stretches as far as the eye can see. Scientifically, the horizon is considered to be two dimensional, however, I have tried to deliver this concept as a three dimensional presentation. I utilized stainless steel bent in a 90 degree angle, which creates an illusion of tension between light and time, achieving a balance between two and three dimensions. As light hits the sculptural forms, it creates flattened shadows and intricate silhouettes. This demonstrates how light informs and orients our understanding and interpretation of our surroundings.
