The Stand

The Stand
This work is comprised of six blocks of marble with different sizes and shapes. The artist makes good use of the massive nature of stone to challenge the laws of gravity. When viewed sideways, the work presents a rotating-like structure. Extending downwards, the tip of the stone is cleverly and effortlessly supported by the ground. Standing with a unique stance, the stone presents a great contrast between the heavy weight of the material and the lightness of the composition. At the same time, the black lacquer of the stone, the tripod legs, and the two-sided golden cone provide the work with a type of organic and biological imagery. One cannot help but think of the image of a three-legged crow, which served as a symbol for the sun in ancient myth.
