“Elements is my version of the classical western four basic elements: earth, water, fire , and air. Three of the shapes are steel and the fourth is a boulder representing earth. The metal shapes are tessellations, (interlocking and repeating shapes), that have been separated and are free standing for this work. Each piece fits together like a puzzle. These shapes show movement, reminiscent of the movement of wind, fire, and water.
My concept expresses the inter-relatedness of the elements by using tessellations forms. Our community’s proximity to the windlands makes The Elements come to life. With the scorched earth, El Nino and the drought, firestorms and the Santa Ana winds, we are all affected by the elements”
