Supernova? is the title of a round wall sculpture measuring 100CM. This piece is part of a new series of works which find their inspiration in the 'pedra portuguesa', a hand laid paving formed from hand cut limestone. Supernova is based on the idea of a mandala; a focal point for concentrating ones mind. The subject reflected on here is impermanence, one of life's great questions. 'I took the design of a famous paving stone used in the city of Sao Paulo (Brazil's financial capital), which itself is in a phase of 'disappearance'. (In many places it is being replaced with asphalt) Since my arrival in Brazil, I became quite focused on this 'pedra portuguesa' in my work. for me it has become a metaphor for impermanence.(nothing is forever). I gave this piece the title 'supernova' due to the astronomical phenomena of the same name; a massive explosion which occurs at the end of the life of a star in space.'
