Rob Lorenson’s Midnight Blue Rhythm evokes the rhythm of breath that unites all of humanity.

Throughout history, geometric forms such as the circle have been referenced as talisman shapes of the sacred. The circle is the shape of the most fundamental element of life–the sun. It is the symbolic harbinger of the divine in ancient religions, representing the dharma wheel, the infinite cycle of the universe, and the life-giving shape of the womb.

Lorenson combines the circular shape with linear aspects, marrying opposing forces of the cyclical with the linear. This fundamental conundrum of expansiveness and self-containment is visual representation of our human predicament, embodied in the materiality of Lorenson’s sculpture.
