Union

Tied in togetherness, bound in union, the indivisibility of our being is at the center of this piece.

UNION floats centered within a fully transparent canvas. It joins human and earth, sky and form. It is a relishable joy to see up close. It’s adorned with a rich dimensional surface including leaves and tiny reflective silver balls. A treat for the eyes and spirit.

As is, it is complete. As a thought for its future mounting possibilities I’ve imagined cutting a piece of plexi to UNION’s exact painted X footprint, trimming the clear away, and marrying the two. The combined backing and painting would then be a solid unit. Adding to this thought I’ve considered putting it on a dial so it can be turned.
