Tiina heres another one, a triptych. It is again oil, mineral and earth pigments on panel 2" deep and recessed cutouts. Not the best shot, its hard to get them all in with out a wide angle lens and am trying to get used to my new digital camera (I loved my old Nikon SLR)I've been working with the square for decades - can't seem to get away from the shape every time I try it pulls me back again!

    #1 29 x 29" inches means 75 x 75 cm square, so this is a large piece. It sure looks like metal ! I have the exactly same experience with the square shape. I always return back to it, and it gives me infinite joy and possibilities. It is said to be the sign of EARTH. I have a huntch that this is true, but at the same time ( by my intuition ) I concider square format being the sign of IMMATERIALITY. This dichotomy would stand as contradictory to most people, but to me it might be the essence of everything, together with the absence of time ( as a man-made concept, time is merely an illusion).

    Cam - I think I must have been a junkyard dog in a previous life. I love funky crusted & rusted metal. The inspiration was from an 8 ft. auger on the back of a flatbed truck at a gas station. It was all rusted and covered with pock marked spot welds - damn it was beautiful and mist filled with Sabi in the truest sense of the word!

    Tiina - OOPS I forgot to give info. This triptych is oil and mineral pigment on panel. Each panel is 29x29 inches measuring 29x91 in. installed the recessed areas are about 1.75 in. deep. I can't seem to get away from the square have been at it for 25+ yrs and have still not exhausted the possibilities using this shape.
