Void is a series of works that attempts to explore 'emptiness' in relation to spirituality, and the all so common 'empty ghost' feeling. Drawing from Buddhist ideas, and meditation of 'the void' and 'emptiness', this artwork attempts to animate and present the void in a visual and visceral form. Emphasized more than anything is the meditative and laborious process behind the making of each of the five pieces in this series. Each sculpture is hand carved, sanded and polished, while thinking about the negative space the sculpture creates, and it's relationship to 'the void.' This series of works represents a culmination of a set of meditations and thought on 'the void.'
Because of the nature of these objects, each resembles a vessel in some way or another. This relationship to the container, body and body as container is almost unavoidable, but at the same time desirable. Each object in the Void series is also a vessel. A vessel for thoughts, meditation and the soul. Each object could also be said to resemble the body, more particularly an orifice. This relationship to the body ties back the notion of our body being an integral part of spirituality and how our body acts as a vessel for our souls and all that we are.
