As part of an ongoing series entitled “Architectural Reliquaries”, it reflects the human imprint of world architecture throughout the ages. Through this series, the viewer is invited to meditate on cultural wonders juxtaposed on the canvas of the present day. Via these sculptures, relationships are created between the artwork and its environment, creating a sense of place within the community. The cast glass is one inch thick, which gives the sculpture brilliant hues. Light, passing through the glass, as well as reflected light, create a feeling of depth and rich colors.
