Ten Elements

Created for Children's National Hospital in Washington, D.C., this wall sculpture comprises ten suspended curvilinear shapes that demonstrate a dynamic interplay of compression and expansion. The design successfully creates a visual rhythm that suggests both movement and stability.

The surface of each element is treated with a patina that imparts a rich spectrum of blues and greens, hues that subtly transition across the sculpture depending on the observer's viewpoint and the ambient lighting. This chromatic effect not only enhances the visual impact of the piece but also exemplifies the use of color in modern metalwork to evoke mood and expression.

In keeping with a tradition of manipulating form and color to challenge the viewer’s perception and engage them in a visual dialogue with the artwork, this sculpture uses patinated metal to achieve color variation. This technique draws on historical metalworking techniques, bringing a timeless quality to a contemporary design. It embodies the fusion of traditional craftsmanship and modern aesthetic exploration. Moreover, the soothing colors and harmonious forms of the sculpture provide a sense of tranquility and comfort to the young patients and their families.
