Black marble abstraction

The creation of this piece was an intense meditative process; I worked through the dark nights and bitter cold of winter, ultimately drawing out from the stone what I see as the essence of flow.

The cold I pushed myself to work through whilst sculpting this stone frequently forced me into a trance-like state, I went through some very powerful experiences and what I can only describe as a spiritual awakening.

I saw the futility of many of my pursuits and was able to let go of many aspects of my life which had no true value, freeing me to focus on my art.
