Hell and Heaven Together

Oil and charcoal on plasma-cut aluminum, 30″ x 60″ x 60″ each

Looking at process and totality, these two domes consider the concept of opposites as two parts of a whole. The shapes originated from one 4″x4″ calligraphic ink drawing that was made into a repeating hexagon. The shapes were cut from aluminum, and the positive shapes make “Heaven” and the negative shapes make “Hell”. Heaven is axial symmetry. Hell is non-axial symmetry. The artworks go together as a set.
