24-Karat Black TOTEM Sculpture in Ebonized Wood and Solid Brass


'24-karat black' is a TOTEM of seduction, critique and reflection. Offering guidance through the difficult passage of time - dug out grooves represent trenches, uneven polished brass steps cunningly promise Jacob’s ladder, and the wood beam looks skyward in hope. It’s towering ‘burnt’ black finish is solid and defiant in contrast to the seductive dance of the shimmering brass questioning social aspirations in the midst of endemic suppression, racial stereotype and gender inequality. The sculpture’s mirrored reverse situates the onlooker within the TOTEM, absorbing them within its spiritual journey and inviting contemplation beyond the superficial glance.
