'Efflorescence'

Bill Barrett

1995 - metal: bronze

Font Size: AAA

As seen in 'Efflorescence', Barrett explores form in space with an elegant fluidity that belies the cold and rigid properties of metal. He composes his sculptures to be read simultaneously on multiple levels--calligraphic strokes become thick, intersecting metal planes that wend and fold into biomorphic forms captured at a moment of exacting, poised balance and presented in an orchestration of grace and harmony. Contributing to this harmony are the synergies formed by implied and arrested movement and by the interplay of positive and negative space.
