Five – by Dusty Folwarczny
2010 / Welded salvaged steel
Location: The Hills De-Caro House [313 N Forest Ave.]
The sculpture is made of five rings of salvaged steel, painted black. The heavy weight of the black rings is rearranged in a kinetic group of forms. The precarious stability of the tower is resolved in the lightness of the whole. This piece is another in a series of reconstructed pillars made in response to the vertical aesthetic of the city.
