Overview

Post-minimal 12 x 17 foot Stainless Steel Sculpture. The sculpture commissioned for this project is in stainless steel which mirrors the stainless steel columns of the interior. At the same time it contrasts with the rectilinear forms of the interior with soaring movement.

Goals

This sculpture made the space come alive.

Process

The architect looked at the artist's work online and suggested a larger version of an existing smaller work. The artist created the new work based on his existing work, changing it to provide more drama and dynamism.
