Dualism #1

The rigid black square steel frame contradicts the soft white flowing silver form. Together they express a unified vision of opposing forces. In The Marriage of Heaven and Hell, the poet, painter and printmaker William Blake described duality to be the source of creation and necessary for existence. Metal offers the possibility to convey both hardness as well as soft fluidity – in appearance as well as in the way it is worked. A combination of hand-carving, casting and constructing are used to create this one-of-a-kind piece.
