ON THE EDGE OF TWO WALLS

ON THE EDGE OF TWO WALLS

Bronze, Stainless Steel, chrome and acrylic 400cm x 380cm x 120cm

This work was commissioned by a private art collector in 2006 and it was partly made in the artists London studio. Cast in transparent acrylic blocks, the details of the sculpture in this scale seem like a piece of unique technology which had been invented by the artist himself. This method is a result of many trials and failures and time after time it was improved.

“I fathomed this work in my early years. Then it seemed to me that this was an aisle of dreams, it was almost impossible to build. The combination of different materials by their nature, metal and glass was unreal. After many years, I still wasn’t confident if I could make it when I was approached to do it. Many people around me tried to convince me not to take the task of making it. I still started work. The blocks from the transparent acrylic had never been done before on that scale. The experts in the factory where that piece had been executed doubted if It could be done. There didn’t exist any technological innovations for such a piece, so we had to invent it.”- the artist commented on his work.
