Acid Patina… Transmuting Metal into Art!
Metal Wall Sculpture ‘Random Order (2)’
‘Random Order (2)’ Metal Wall Sculpture.
Inspiration for ‘Random Order (2)’
The inspiration for this work stems from combining concepts of sacred geometry, cellular automata and randomness to generate an artwork’s composition. These processes are considered to play some key roles in the natural world we see around us.
So can we use these geometrical and mathematical tools to generate art that is both æsthetic and stirs our curiosity?
This wall sculpture is a development on an earlier work ‘Random Order’. Five individual wall sculptures make up the total installation – a pentaptych.
Design of ‘Random Order (2)’
The five brass hexagonal planes are sized on an underlying cellular grid, produced using sacred geometry. Elements of cellular automata & randomness have also been used in the positioning of the various circular forms.
The presence or absence of a ring in a grid’s cell is determined by the use of a random number generator, as is the patina colour of the ring. Although they are all randomly placed, some rings are observed to form aggregate structures, reminiscent of simple multicellular organisms. Order is born from randomness.
A small hole is to be found in each hexagonal entity. These lead to another plane, another dimension. Laying beyond the material façade of this world, it is beyond our reach and vision. 24 karat gold leaf is used to indicate the purity and value of this hidden realm.
Making of ‘Random Order (2)’
The solid brass sheet and copper/brass rings have been variously coloured using several traditional hand applied acid patina techniques.
Finished with a clear lacquer and mounted onto plywood backer board.
Installation of ‘Random Order (2)’
Each artwork has two hanging points. They may be hung pointing vertical, or can be hung pointing horizontal.
The installation of a polyptych wall sculpture opens up the potential of the artwork fitting your space and creating a very unique installation.
Full custom installation set-outs are provided with these polyptych wall sculpture artworks to ensure the installation remains in harmony with the geometry of the sculptures. Simply send me details of the wall you want the installation and I will present you with several harmonious set-out options.
