Travertine nocce marble, steel; 48 x 39 x 54”
The stone is elevated upon the base so that its opening is at the heights of an average table. A plum seed is the form source, which refers to sustenance. The kernel is missing from the seedcase, so that reaching into the seedcase interior accommodates a human arm. This hole refers to the natural seeds that have been accessed by animals or insects. The hollow form refers to the cave or cave architecture.
The far wall of the interior space is beyond one’s reach. One reaches into the unknown. The piece is about desire beyond reach.
