Steel, zinc, paint
Edition of 8
An abstract sculpture that references the sun/moon as the steel encircles the sphere. The sculpture creates intersections – a meeting point, through which light can travel. The negative space is a connection, a connection between different expressions of form, and the space itself becomes its own form. Space is as much a part of a Moorhouse’s sculpture as mass. For more information see Pete’s artist statement where he talks about the Japanese concept of ‘ma’.
The sculpture takes some inspiration form the wonderful works of Barbara Hepworth who was known for her sculptural forms with holes. She called that first sculpture ‘Pierced Form’ – a work that, simply by existing, could reframe the world it inhabited, make it possible to see through form and simultaneously see differently via form.
Elegant, bold and striking Azure has a real presence and works well from all view-points, changing subtly with the light conditions as the light catches different flanges according to the time of day.
