The years that have passed have seen me engaging in many different contemplative practices. My involvement in qigong and other meditative practices have inspired this high relief, fused with my religious roots and the fact that I recently taught a section on Ghiberti's Gates of Paradise. I call it Silentium (latin for you can guess what).
I enjoy the intellectual challenge of the relief; somewhere between sculpture and the trompe l'oeil inherent in 2-dimensional drawing--vanishing points appear in an x-y-z grid.
Psalms 40:6 -Tu ne désires ni sacrifice ni offrande, Tu m'as ouvert les oreilles; Tu ne demandes ni holocauste ni victime expiatoire. -Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire; mine ears hast thou opened: burnt offering and sin offering hast thou not required. - 祭物和礼物，你不喜悦。你已经开通我的耳朵。燔祭和赎罪祭，非你所要。 -victima et oblatione non indiges aures fodisti mihi holocaustum et pro peccato non petisti
