Insight Out
2013
5.5'h x 4'w x 1'd
Steel, Iron

Insight Out is part of a series of works that incorporate antique ice saws as their central framework. Two vertical saw blades support and unite two additional steel elements ---- a large central orb and curved leaf spring. As the layered spring flexes and stretches outward and upward it delineates a complex negative space that is defined by its arc and that of the curved orb below. Characterized by a Zen-like serenity, this work possesses a subtle visual tension between the circular orb at the center and the gently curving spring that spans the top. It encourages the viewer to think about both the physical form of the sculpture as well as its intellectual and emotional content.
