This is the first in what I intend to be a series of Obscura sculptures. I very much want to further explore the twisted, swirling energy of this type of structure. In many ways this type a piece is an extension of an interior turmoil I have been feeling recently. Indeed this sculpture is sort of an embodiment of turmoil. What I have assessed from creating and living with this piece is that there is a beauty to turmoil. Until this piece goes off to one of my galleries, I have been living with it in the living room of my DC condo, and interestingly, this intended 'turmoil embodiment' has a rather calming presence.
