Jason Starin: SOL
SOL is a continuing series of ceramic and multi-media sculptures influenced by architectural detritus and varying landscape surfaces, suggesting the deterioration of structure, containment, as well as categorical reasoning as signified in the ubiquitous simple geometry of the cube as false solid or empty container.
