Vibration, 2023

Steel with a natural finish
650 × 28 × 7 cm
This steel body seems to have been rammed into the ground by the hand of the gods, stretching upwards in a long, slightly curved form. From a distance, the sculpture looks like a drawing in space, placed by a light hand. A steel sculpture can also embody this weightlessness. In addition, the artist's handwriting creates the structure of the lateral surface, textured with the blowtorch, as a contrast to the other three smooth side surfaces. A wonderful play with the sunlight is created.
