About "Sister Moon"
This sculpture was inspired by the decorative carvings on functional African ware. The base is taken from a weaving loom. Sister Moon refers to St. Catherine who began the movement of Francescan nuns, had a deep love for St. Francis of Asisi, Brother Sun. Silver is traditionally associated with the moon and the feminine element. The shape of her head is crescent shaped as a half moon and the metallic shine is saintly.
I am largely inspired by the natural world we live in, and the colour and content of my work reflects this. The constant play of light and shadow around us is visible in my work. I sculpt with light as a tool; reading the shadows that arise from the fall of light on a sculpted line. Life and its sights are a constant marvel to me. I like to find beauty and if I don't see it in something to recreate it with beauty.
