The altered triangular pyramid form, welded in expanded steel mesh, painted in bright pink pops off the wall into space. Beneath the work, an implied 2d shadow appears illusionistically in black expanded steel mesh. A light source creates alternate shadows that question the reality of what we see. What is real and what is illusion.
Geometrics with Shadows 2 can be hung on the wall or can be presented on a flat base or plinth. Lighting helps to extend the illusion of what is real and what was not.
This steel mesh geometric series was made for a show at Creation Wines in the Hemel en Aarde valley near Hermanus in the Eastern Cape.
