Edition of 3
This sculpture is constructed of neurons. It highlights the beauty of these forms with their dendritic synapses.
It provides a moment to think about thinking, we can’t see the new neural pathways that are being created with new experiences, interactions etc. It’s about believing the unseen. It’s about the beauty of thought – the potential of thought and ideas. Soma is a celebration of the unique ability humans have to be imaginative, original and creative.
The abstract geometric arrangement creates a sense of balance, continuity and harmony. This is a common theme with Pete’s sculptures that they are symmetrical, proportional, and balanced.The form of the sculpture also pays homage to the sculptures of Barbara Hepworth with her pierced forms and attention to form and space.
