This is a one-off work. I have only one artwork available for the moment. Thanks, Thierry
Context of creation:
Sun, Moon, and Vibrations (part 2) is in its essence, the celebration of birth, of this palpable energy surrounding creation: -Whether for the birth an idea, of a child or for that of a work of art, this magic operates, in the sense that it is primarily our thoughts which create everything first, what will be physically manifested thereafter.
Between -idea- and -reality-, the line can be quite thin. Between the power of the will and the feeling of letting-go, is the polarized state we seek to set into balance, to pass from one state to another.
Setting up recently my own workshop on the banks of the Fleuve St-Laurent, in beautiful St-Jean-Port -Joli Qc, I had this thought about the actual action of welcoming a particular new stages in life... Which I thought could be best managed through participation and action:
-Since my new hometown is an historic village especially famous for its wood carving and fine crafts tradition...I decided to just really go with this flow of sculptural influence, and create my first sculpture, as to mark this transition. This is how it came about for me; But all of us can relate I think to this theme.
Sun, Moon, and Vibrations (part 2) thus celebrates these new beginnings and new stages we all live, in a simple yet refined rendering;
The sculpture's polarized colour scheme, form and composition, invite a simple yet pleasant push-pull shadow interplay between its circular elements, marking time, moon cycles, and birth. The piece invites for new beginnings through energy balance.
Carved and domed-out of beautiful Maple burl, each Sun & Moon disc elements are tied to a graphite finish, basswood base.
The discs finish is dye with no varnish whatsoever ; This give the wood a surreal, soft, velvety appearance that is not otherwise available in contemporary art.
Sun and Moon are represented as polarities, and can be viewed as whole from all angles.
The blue line is especially there, for to welcome decision, actions, movements of life and light.
