The word sphere - describes, on the one hand, the circular form of the work but also refers to a three-dimensional form, i.e., a sphere, which is related to the play of two-ness and dimensionality in the work. In ancient astronomy/cosmology, the celestial sphere stood for the spherical shells orbiting the earth, to which the sun and moon were attached.
The work bears its own title with the words "more than meets the eye" which functions as a quasi slogan both for the work and for the viewer. This slogan is understood less as a catchphrase and more as an indication that this is a work of art whose statement or pictorial content is not set in stone, but rather open towards its interpretation and is variable and stretchable. The work as a whole addresses the viewer and the legibility of the work itself.
The title refers to the invisible or the unknown in the artwork; which simultaneously looks back at the viewer and is a voyeur itself. The depicted figure can be perceived as a portrait but also as an alter ego or as a counterpart. (perhaps also as a mirror image) The core of the work is the observation of the work itself and one’s many identifications with it.
