Art Description

Sculpture: Metal on Steel, Aluminium.

ARTWORK NARRATIVE:
The sound of an instrument or a voice sliding from one note to another has an ambiguous effect: depending on the context, it can suggest jazzy liberation, wartime destruction, otherworldly realms, or primitive rituals.

This sculpture can be placed indoors or outdoors. I really find the dark body allows the red fins and aluminum musical plates to capture the viewers attention for closer inspection.

MATERIALS:
Steel & Aluminum. Each aluminum piece has been stamped with a musical note. The steel riser section is painted and patina'd. The sculpture is welded to a thick steel plate finished in the same color as the body. The base plate measures 16"x20".
