Tree of life I
Dimensions of image are 118 x 117 cm.
Print, in yellows, reds, oranges, dark greens, white, and black, is composite of images created from photographs taken by artist in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. Images include fireworks, or castillos; enormous sculputures made of reed and metal, creating shapes of kinetic light; and flameworked borosilicate glass sculptures created by the artist. The layered images symbolize the Mayan calendar, specifically the days and nights between 1999 and 2011 that led up to the end of the calendar. The artist has captured with the glass installation the three dimensional aspect of the days and nights and the coming astronomical alignment; the work itself represents light.
