Ariel’s work epitomizes his world view - a harmonious blend of naturalism and theism. Likewise, he believes art can act as a mediator between opposing belief systems. His work explores the space created when material succumbs to agency, and spans the distance separating intelligent design and evolution, with the goal of ultimately joining them.  In this series of sculptures, he creates handmade, miniature flowers infused with a spiral in the center, imitating the DNA of the individual. These miniature sculptures bond together like cells to create a larger body illustrating unique purpose and symbiotic integration.  Ariel considers every flower a complete work of art on its own, not just a medium of execution for the piece. His creations remind us to take a moment to appreciate the details in nature, and our lives, that allow progress to proceed seamlessly.
