The Sea of Unknowing (1996)

The Sea of Unknowing

Modified wooden boat, black pigment, water, toy boat and nightlight

138 x 282 x 67cm (1st version)

As in all these pieces the interior becomes the world - inside and outside have inverted, consciousness now contains reality and an image of itself, within the now now cavernous body of the boat.

(I must confess the image could be seen as reflecting a Wordsworthian image of the sublime I hadn't consciously intended)
