Merge | Emerge 2003

(out of) Community of Property – The Art Space, Johannesburg

The ring or circle universally symbolises elements of perfection, truth, unification, wholeness, security, ongoing life, the cycle of life.

A very powerful form that holds many different meanings, but it seems strongest as a visual form/shape containing and capturing ones thoughts as something whole, together, omnipotent, secure.

When two of these units come into contact or relationship with one another, there is action, interaction, change.

As these rings merge, they change ever so slightly, to accommodate the other without loosing its original identity and singularity.

The units emerge as stronger, more intense when merging and stand out as being more powerful as a partnership
