In this work by the National Artist Arturo Luz, the lines and shapes of his famed abstraction are translated into three-dimensional forms — sculptures that still retain the master’s Minimalist yet elegant sensibility. Aside from the base which is a rectangle, Luz used only circles and squares to evoke the two themes connected to his name: the unicyclist and the acrobat.
Connected through lines of wire, the forms increase in height as the feat becomes more difficult. The negative space of the sculptures allows air and light to penetrate through the forms, which altogether maintain a balancing act that is svelte, balletic, and unforgettable.
