Jonas Raw, Reflect, 2022
Fitted with polished steel panels, Reflect’s irregular architecture mirrors yet distorts the surrounding seascape. From afar, it might be perceptible only as a subtle wrinkle in the fabric of the universe, as the suggestion of a hidden and somewhat otherworldly aperture through which to pass.
On the other side of this wrinkle, visitors will find themselves as if transported to another time and place which embraces the body within an impossible quiet, gentle warmth and the earthy scent of the structure’s minimalist cedar paneling.
The work’s creator, Jonas Raw, hopes that this illusion of heading somewhere inside the earth will prompt visitors to retreat inside themselves. To take a moment during their walk on the sculpture trail for stillness and reflection and enjoy being together in thought in the sheltered space he has carefully crafted.
