In this series of ‘singing’ bowl sculptures, Marlene Hilton Moore continues to explore the theme of ‘listening.’ This large steel bowl, gloss black on the exterior with a spun bronze interior, is based on traditional Tibetan singing bowls used in healing and meditation. When the bowl is rung with a rubber mallet or the hand, it produces a range of tones that correspond to planetary frequencies. The Singing Bowl Venus can create a cosmic octave, the sound frequency of the planet Venus. “Do we listen, do we hear? Ultimately we hear sound, but listening constructs meaning. Silence too is a part of listening.” Marlene Hilton Moore She has received awards from the Canada Council for the Arts, The Ontario Arts Council and the Sheila Hugh Mackay Foundation. Her work is in the collection of the Canada Council Art Bank, the Agnes Etherington Art Centre, the University of Winnipeg and many other public and private collections.
