In 2020, I began to incorporate the circle and the elipse (a circle seen from an angle), as symbols of spiritual contemplations and the wholeness of being. Placed around the head ( but not a halo in its meaning), the ellipse specifically represents to me expanded human consciousness, or awareness, seeing both the inner as well as the outer life. In a sense, this symbol suggests wisdom. In a few of these works, I have placed the figure upon what appears to be a sphere, or even a planet. A full circle is often a symbol for wholeness, or the experience of unity. These works suggest more than ever, the need for wisdom on the planet on which we find ourselves in these unusual and challenging times.
