This is a wonderful piece…

Posted on February 17, 2012

It was hanging in the lobby of the LA County Museum of Art. I did not write down the artist’s name. I just think the transparency is wonderful. You almost do not notice it even though it is very large and looms overhead when you walk in. As you look more closely, you see beautiful composition of hardware, weights and wires that make a delicate floating three-dimensional web.

A little closer

Looking up through it from below.

    I agree. I really like your last photo, the one looking up. It is like getting a glimpse of sub-atomic particles at play. It almost gives me vertigo!

    It’s fantastic!

    Is that made with wire & mirrors?
    (mirrors, string & glue… as the ‘saying’ goes..)

    A splendid construction! The artist might be Gego – Gertrud Goldschmidt, a German immigrant to Venuzuela.
