inner sanctum meditations
inner sanctum meditations offers a personal glimpse into an ongoing series of three-dimensional works, known as Sanctum Boxes, by Charles Heppner. Each of the Sanctum Boxes, which are built out of cigar boxes and inlaid with symbolic contents, examine iconography that center around issues of peace and social justice. Inspired by the meditation practice during the Catholic Lenten season of the Stations of the Cross, the Sanctum Boxes focus on themes such as self-reflection, compassion and gratitude. Viewed as self-actualization pieces, each work is a meditation on personal growth.
