That the structure stands 'off' the canvas is a reflection that pertains to physical reality, the obeseness of external.
I use volcanic gravel, which is glass-like and black to represent the most dense and unchanging aspects of the physical realm, as well as to put forward that even the most solid world like crystal, allows light to pass through, light being the vehicle of the physical experience.
The 'iceberg' structure reflects those attributes in the physical world that are ever changing and mutable - they represent a still snapshot which lasts momentarily before it has changed in form, never to be repeated.
The flow of silver (or gold), in colour and cencept, unify these two extremes, reflecting the unmutable as mutable and visa versa, to bring rise to the thought that the physical is perhaps not as it appears. Its reflective quality hints at the unstable and holographic nature of the physical. It reflects, that light is the basis for what we see, that perhaps light merely reflects thought.
Which is why I use epoxy resin - to represent that we look through something to experience the physical, like looking at a landscape photograph to experience the landscape - it represents our inner aspect, our conciousness, whereby we are able to look through an idea to actualise it, thereby experiencing it.
And as waters 'expression' changes when imbued with differing intent or emotional value, as documented by Dr. Masaru Emoto, resin molecules also bond to form new molecular structures as it cures, so I imbue the resin with 'energies' or values of 'intention', such as Light, Love, Clarity and Truth. I do this while working with the resin and whilst its curing I 'pour' my intention into the resin by holding my hands over it and focusing the desired intent 'into' it. The idea being that once its cured, the intent is locked in and resonates from the piece.
That I create this idea as art, something to be displayed, represents the extraordinary beauty and miracle of the holographic creative universe - just as Source (God) might frame Earth and hang it someplace visable.
If I have an aim, it is to bring focus back to the observer, showing the external as illusion and light-play, to remind you of your internal.
