New Wooden Sculptures

Wood taken from trees in a convent close to where I live. Dried, cleaned and then carved into the shapes below.
Dark coloured one has been finsihed with oil, the lighter colour has been left bare and is the natural colour of the wood.
Themes and inspiration for the work have been Karma Yoga and Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi theory of Flow Psychology whereby the aim is for a loss of refelctive self conciosuness through total immersion with the activity and object at hand. In simple terms loose yourself in your work :)
''Let yourself be silently drawn
by the strange pull of what you really love.
It will not lead you astray.''

~ Rumi ~
