Architectural sculpture


A characteristically enigmatic architectural sculpture which invites the viewer to journey mentally around the structure, to explore the spaces and shadows and to imagine what is not shown.


If we are to think of this image as a building then we need to imagine occupying its spaces, existing at some scale within its shadows. The artist asks us to enter his fiction and find a place for ourselves. As soon as we engage at this level our experience of  the work is greatly enhanced as we will necessarily explore it in far greater detail.
