Cosimo Cavallaro

KNOTS
1996
94" x 192" x 89"
Steel

Knots deftly re-spins hardcore industrial material as flimsy pool noodles. The entwined bundle of steel tubes exemplifies his interest in the multi-layered concept of birth, using the form of a giant umbilical cord to symbolize the entanglement of human emotions and to express a sense of confusion and our inability, at times, to resolve feelings or articulate thoughts. Cavallaro's sculptural linear gesture illustrates his ongoing interest in man s struggle between need and desire; security and uncertainty.
