The continuum of planes which create INFINITY RINGS are inspired
by the “Moebius Strip,” first formulated by the 19th century German
mathematician and astronomer, A. F. Moebius. The rings have no
beginning and no end. The bottom side becomes the topside and
the inside becomes the outside. Touch any place on a ring with
your finger and trace the circular form; you will complete the
circle and end up where you started. The continuum is also the
same principle on which the artist M.C. Escher based many of his
creative works in which he explored reversals of positive and
negative forms in space.
The construction of these sculptures is the result of years of investigating diverse processes. After many failures, I developed a painstaking method of building a hollow ceramic continuum. Each ring is unique in its creation. As the INFINITY RINGS can sometimes collapse during the building process or implode during kiln firing, their creation is both costly and time consuming. Thus, they are not only innovative and unique, each ring is a rare creative achievement. Experimenting with a variety of materials, I have added aluminum, steel, Lucite, bronze, glass, tile mosaic, and fiberglass as mediums to express the INFINITY RING. Each material adds another dimension to the expression of the spirit of the ring.
In terms of ancient Feng Shui principles, the circular nature of the INFINITY RING promotes infinite abundance, harmony, serenity and healing. The INFINITY RING is a vehicle for me to explore the creative process. Through this artistic vision my intention is to reveal universal and deeply personal truths. The INFINITY RINGS are where art and spiritual growth interconnect. Each feeds off the other, in a never ending cycle of overcoming artistic obstacles and creating inner growth.

The Ring of Inclusion, the first of Charles Sherman’s
Sunset Infinity Ring series, will be unveiled August 28,
11:00 AM at 3025 Sunset Blvd. 90026, one block west of
Silverlake Blvd. This event is free to the public
This event is inspired by LA Opera’s, On The Road To The Ring leading to the performances of Richard Wagner’s famous opera cycle, Der Ring Des Nibelungen, at the Dorothy Chandler Pavillion from April 15, through June 30, 2010.
Sherman believes that art is the universal language of healing.
In addition to creating his Infinity Rings, Sherman has been developing a ring philosophy for several years. His theory is based on the ring as a continuum in art with all its abundant symbols and metaphors.
While Richard Wagner's written statements are highly
bigoted, his art has risen above his flawed political
ideology. In Wagner’s opera, the golden ring was used
exclusively to acquire power and great wealth. Sherman’s
Infinity Rings are visual and
literal symbols of unity, wholeness, love, and inclusion -- all elements of healing.
The Ring of Inclusion, The Sunset Infinity Ring, is dedicated to the LA Opera and the diverse people of Los Angeles.
