Fragment No. 5, is the 5th of nine mixed media works cast from an original clay relief of a tree inspired by the works of one of my favorite artists, Piet Mondrian. Being the fifth casting, Fragment No.5 is showing veritable signs of abstractions in form. The following 4 Fragments continue to reduce their wholeness of form, a natural occurrence of this casting process, similar to the process of aging. The last few Fragments, are mere vestiges of the original piece, yet still hold a deep and profound essence and beauty.
