Time and space are recurring tropes in Sena’s work—two concepts that are often used to ascertain if something is real. Does it exist? Do we exist? In what reality do we exist?
One feels as though the fabric of time is shifting as one examines Sena’s work, a vertigo is evoked, an existential crisis is inspired and we are transformed by looking into the abyss of the infinite. There is comfort in the nothingness, as we come to know voids intimately. Death is always looming but so is the possibility of something beyond it. There are the spaces between us that we navigate physically and theoretically and importantly, the potential of connection and understanding held within those vessels of nil, nothingness. To know our outer limits, to map where we end and infinity begins is a promise of safety, a connection to divinity, which is surely all that is unknown but glimmering at us faintly, just beyond our technology, our mental and spiritual faculties’ grasp. The questions that drive us have never been rendered so beautifully as in Sena’s work. To think the charred edge of a circular hole in paper could bring us closer to the divine—truly, there is magic in this art.
