 Mahogany Series 

The Mahogany Series

This is a recent body of work in Italian Statuario carved in relief.  It is a series of work
experimenting with carving an image in negative, positive and a combination of the two.  Using the transparancy of Statuario marble when carved in the negative, very thin, and properly lit, I have found the mind will see this carved image... which is within, as positive.  It has been for me,  a journey into our Inner Presence. 

What is without form, is within. What is within, is without form...but is present.
Existence is... within the shadows cast. 

I have mounted this work on or within a Mahogany
frame... thus the name for the series.   

I hope you enjoy!!
