Mindfulness and Self
Mindfulness has become something of a 21st century fad, arising from the practices of yoga and meditation.
Being fully and knowingly aware of your body, your breathing, and the details of your surroundings.
Here the bronze figure steps out of his workday background into a clear white enclosure and onto a golden sphere, holding up what looks like a flame or an exotic flower.

The 'flame' is a broken seashell held in a brass bullet case. The piano keys under his feet are for the subdued music of his mind, and the patterns of his world are the strips of nails that feed the repetitive hammering of a nailgun.
Dale's studio can be found at Puniho,
Surf Highway, Coastal Taranaki, New Zealand
