Meta Spherical is a sculptural exploration of the search for truth at the intersection of science, faith, and human perception. Interconnected matrices of smaller clay components come together to form abstract sculptures referencing the sphere as a metaphor for absolute truth. The depth and texture of the forms are highlighted through eroded slips, stains, and underglazes, or through the effects of an atmospheric soda firing. The opposing qualities of positive and negative space, of construction and deconstruction, are integral in expressing themes of the human search for comprehension within an enigmatic universe. Through variations of the spherical forms, the artist examines a personal deconstruction of fundamentalist religious belief and the embrace of questioning, doubt, and scientific explanations for our existence. The result is sculptural ceramic work that addresses a metacognitive approach. The work illustrates the mystery and beauty of our search for answers.
