Fiat Lux January 29 to March 10 March, 2011
Mahana Gallery N.Z.
Fiat Lux (let there be Light) from the Book of Genesis, the motto of U.C. California. Deeptime #26, was made at UC Berkeley, in the large kiln built in the teaching days of Peter Voulkos and restored for this project. #26 was made with a ton of porcelain and was an ambitious experiment to create a work which would visually and physically convey a sense of personal and global fragility. The supporting sculptures in this installation are cast or modelled from existing objects to form a rosary of energy saving light bulbs and a mandala of supersized anti depressant pills.
