In this 2 piece sculpture of a spherical bubble on a stand, or more precisely, a ballon, we see images of 2 jesters set in motion. First one creating the bubble we observe, second jester is popping the bubble with the pin. Interestingly, the jesters are simultaneously creating, then destroying the bubble, and are reflected in it. The artist is making philosophical and theological references to the creation and destruction forces of the universe, good and evil, and passage of time; the world within and without. In the creation of the form, woven out of the fabric of the cosmos, jester breathes life into the bubble, just for it to be surrendered to the destructive force of the needle.
Painted with lots of gold and earth tones on sky blue, the spherical piece resembles the Earth, observed from outer space, when it is held in the hand. With jesters themselves being symbols of wit and entertainment, artist referring to the purpose of life from the perception of omnipotent being.
