Counterpoint, 2015

 

 

 

This sculpture was installed in 2015 as part of the 2014 Columbus Sculpture Biennial. As a result of delayed installation, the work will remain in its present location until mid-2017.

Location: Robert Garton Plaza, 2nd and Jackson Streets.

 

Counterpoint is architectural in form and dynamic in visual movement. The main body of the sculpture is approximately 10 degrees from the vertical. This tall slender form is precariously balanced by the outstretched stone that hovers above and to the side of the tilting column. The overall composition is a delicate balance of light and dark forms working in unison, creating visual tension and a structural dance. The work is made of powder coated steel and limestone that is carved in a manner that accentuates the movement of the piece. Gold leaf adorns the form balanced on the cantilevered arm.
