LIKE COCONUT'S (WHICH ARE IN ESSENCE SEEDS THEMSELVES), IT'S EXOCARP AND/OR OUTER LAYER IS REPRESENTATIVE OF OUR OWN OUTER SHELLS OR SKIN.... WE ARE ALL VERY DIFFERENT ON THE OUTSIDE ,BUT WE ALL SHARE MANY SIMILARITIES ON THE INSIDE....A COCONUT'S "WHITE" AND FLESHY CORE CENTER IS CALLED THE ENDOSPERM.
I BELIEVE THAT THIS CENTER CORE IS SYMBOLIC OF OUR OWN FLESHY BEATING HEARTS.....ULTIMATELY WE'RE ALL VERY UNIQUE, WE ARE UNIQUE IN RACE, RELIGION AND GENDER... I HAD BEGAN TO OBSERVE THE COCONUTS WHICH HAD CONTINUE TO FALL ONTO MY BACK YARD FROM TWO LARGE MAYPAN COCONUT PALMS. I SAW THE FALLEN COCONUTS IN THEIR MOST PUREST AND PRIMITIVE STATE. CREATING ORGANIC HANGING SCULPTURES WHILE INCORPORATING NATIONAL OR LBGT FLAGS (PAINTED ONTO LEAVES), PLACED WITHIN EACH COCONUT CORE. THE COCONUTS BECAME VESSELS OF NATIONALITY OR GENDER PREFERENCE. THE SMALL SCULPTURES SYMBOLIZING IDENTITY AS IF BORN FROM THE COCONUT'S HUSK (MESOCARP).
There's no retirement for an artist, it's your way of living so there's no end to it. — Henry Moore
The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance. — Aristotle
It is interesting how the things we vaguely remember, the foggy details of our lives, become more vivid in time than learned knowledge.
These are the subconscious building-blocks; framework(s) of human time & memory.
All of these puzzle pieces are acquired through-out our lifetime. These are the pieces of our lives.
