|This is about shape, line and contrast. The gray metal is quite visible, and contrasts with its rusted steel base. |
Rigid squared lines of the matrix interact with the circular. Verticals of repeating patterns have trapped hoops.
I rarely use galvanized metal. The zinc coating creates toxic fumes when being welded. When galvanized pieces are in my sculpture, it is because I feel they are exceptional. I take extra safety precautions in working with the gases formed.
I designed this piece as an abstraction. The title suggests an urban building, surrounded by two very large circular bodies in eclipse.
This medium sized piece represents a shift in scale and weight. Its compact shape fits comfortably into an outside or inside display.
