Mystic Motion
2010
4'x15'x15'
Aluminum

Mystic Movement consists of three identical forms that can be positioned in a myriad of ways to provide a desired element of change and interest. The forms look part plant, animal, and human depending on how they are postioned; they sparkle with intensity and light. This sculpture can be perceived as the dance of spinning whirling dervishes or as the concept of time as a circle consisting of three phases: past, present, future; birth, life, death; or beginning, middle, end – each unfolding itself to the next and continuing infinitely. Also referenced in this sculpture is the triplicate idea of Thomas Aquinas’ three requisites for beautiful: wholeness or perfection, harmony or proportion, and radiance
