The work comes from the inspiration of the elements. In order of density, there are four types, fire, air, water, and earth. The Earth symbol represents the physical and natural world. The triangle is a typical glyph for depicting the elements in ancient literature. That is why this shape is the choice for this artwork.
Here we see copper infused into this artwork to give it a shimmer.  The metal Copper relates to the goddess Venus. She represents the mother goddess as much as the earth does too. The viewer can appreciate the geometric crystalline form either as a precious stone or a geographical terrain.  There are scintillating pockets of metal that resonate beautifully with the oxide greens and subtle blues, typically Venusian colours.
Nature's process expresses itself by the exposed shining pockets of erosion as well as the dull surfaces that rusted to a malachite colour over time. This wall piece is a totem and a magical artefact. The inspiration comes from magic and mysticism.  This ancient concept is represented anew in the movement of minimalism and abstraction.
