Sculpture: Stone, Resin on Stone, Other.
I'm currently trying to explore the intermixing of technical complexity with simple repeating patterns. For this sculpture I started with attempting carving 2 interlocking mobius triangles but was unable to fit it in the stone. I then took a belt of mine and tied it in a 5 way knot. It was complex, but had an attractive visual appeal. I successfully carved that shape in this alabaster but during sanding accidentally broke the sculpture and due to internal stress it simultaneously broke into 5 separate pieces. In order to glue it back together, between each crack I epoxied flexible brass sheets. At that point I decided this piece should celebrate it's story and not try to hide the repair so I carved it out deeper and filled with a contrasting brown epoxy to highlight the "flaws" instead.
