'Bridge'

Richard Heinrich

1985 - metal: steel, mild

Font Size: AAA

Richard Heinrich's 'Bridge' stands over ten feet tall and was made in 1983 from steel plate, cut and welded into an angular geometric composition. When viewing the abstract metal work from one side, three main sections become apparent. However, when one walks to the opposite side, a more complex pattern is revealed, as the sections are further divided with smaller rectangles. Segments are arranged to purposely set up an interplay of negative space and intersecting planes. The open area at the bottom lightens the work and lifts it up off the plane of the ground. The raw surface of this industrial metal has been allowed to rust forming a uniform, cohesive unit.
