Interior Cell

"Interior Cell" is a 3D installation which combines a hand built clay sculpture with oil and cold wax painting. This sculpture was conceived while contemplating St. Catherine of Sienna's theory of mans interior cells. As a doctor of the church she was given spiritual insights into both self-knowledge and knowledge of God -both of which are a reality for every human being. The cell of self-knowledge is represented in the oil and cold wax painting while the cell in which we find knowledge of God is represented within the clay sculptures hollow lit chest cavity. This is home for an iconic image of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. You will noticed I have painted the eyes as well because they are the window to the soul.
