knot now

2019 | Painted bronze mounted on Powder Coated steel base

Commissioned for a private villa in the hills outside Nice, Knot Now is part of an ongoing investigation into the eloquence and perpetual puzzle of lines resolving themselves into knots.
Knots are designed to be both permeant and reversable, they are emblematic metaphor for decision making, for path taken and subsequently bifurcating into many more possible paths. In this sculpture the working out of journey is clear and articulated, but the journey folds back into itself. The beginning and the end fusing together.
The saturated warm yellow of the sculpture is a reference to the heat of the southern sun and the presence of the ubiquitous sunflowers that grow nearby.
