This eye-catching, thought-provoking twisted steel monolith sculpture is sure to be THE conversation piece of any interior or exterior! This masterfully artist-designed and created art sculpture is unsigned but it is quite evident the work of a highly talented and imaginative individual.
When we aquired it, we were told that it was done by a professor at Princeton University but we never did the investigative work neccessary to verify this, so take the attribution at face value. The dealer did hail from that area so it's plausable. The sculpture is finely crafted of corten steel with a beautiful even intentionally rusted patinated surface. The piece features a tall and substantial monolith pillar.
The piece is literally twisted about 3/4 of the way to the top, which is an amazing feat of engineering and artistry! The artist no doubt twisted the monolith while the steel was red hot, as the twisted section is flawless and beautifully done... Reminiscent of the ceramic work of George Ohr.The asymmetrical top gives the sculpture an imposing presence. The piece is welded to a corten steel square base and is quite heavy. This neo-monolith modernist piece will make a truly amazing focal point in a garden, courtyard or interior.
This outstanding piece of art would look right at home at The MoMA; the piece has an earned aura of value and prestige. Sculpture presents beautifully and is in very good vintage condition, with very minor display wear and patina/oxidation commensurate with age and as intended by the artist. This rare and truly unique brutalist/modernist sculpture will make an impeccable addition to any fine and well curated art collection.
A phenomenal piece that is too good not to be seriously considered! Perhaps you'll figure out who did it for sure? No doubt it will be worth much more if you can identify the artist.
