Final shot of this work in progress. Airy ceramic matrix containing a skull, on a mirror to double the image 'Form is Emptiness...' #formisemptiness #emptinessisform #ceramics #mirror #skull #workinprogress

Another view... work on progress. 'Form is Emptiness, Emptiness is Form' #ceramic #skull #workinprogress #buddhism #formisemptiness #emptinessisform #mirror

Work in progress. Still exploring the concept of 'Emptiness is Form, Form is Emptiness'. The form mounted on the mirror gives a bit of formlessness to the form I think... #formisemptiness #emptinessisform #heartsutra #buddhism #workinprogress #ceramics #mirror #skull #skulls

Final shot of work in progress. My home page is once again symmetrical..ah. #workinprogress #symetrical #interconnectedness #quantumphysics #metaphysics #abstractart

Continuing work on the 'interconnectiveness' piece. Latex paint on canvas ... I'm liking it! #interconnectedness #allthingsareconnected #conceptart

Work in progress, title to be determined, but trying to depict the interconnectiveness of all things #abstractart #canvas #interconnectivenessofallthings #interconnected #workinprogress #allthingsareone

Still photo of my first 'aha I might get there!" piece for my 'Form is Emptiness, Emptiness is Form' exhibit. Okay okay it's not until March 2018. But when it's new thoughts, new materials, new concepts it takes time #formisemptiness #emptinessisform #heartsutra #buddhist #plexiglass #workinprogress #ephemeral #emptiness #formisemptinessemptinessisform #timcollomgallery #gallery #exhibition

First 'success' is the 'Form is Emptiness, Emptiness is Form" series. ( based on the Heart Sutra) This layered plexiglass 'stabile' has a form...but characteristics of emptiness #formisemptiness #emptinessisform #buddhist #sutra #plexiglass #stabile #mobile #indiaink

Wrapping up this instagram series of shots of the #workinprogress. Rusted steel on wooden canvas #rust #golden #steel

Still messing with the composition. Helped by having attached the metal to the wood with string magnets behind the wood panel. Can keep moving and adjusting indefinitely - but is that a good thing? :-) #composition #recomposing #changeistheonlyconstant #adjustment

Love the texture here. .. and the layered paint. And the dimensionality. Struggling with the composition. Part of the process as 'they say' #rust #rust_of_our_world #dimensionality #abstractart #patina
