Celle Sculpture
1985 - iron, steel wire, tempera paint on the wall

The work was intended for the artificial lighting of the small room on the second floor of the farm building. Leaning against the left wall, a thick sheet of steel seems to bend under the weight of two large glass plates. These are an illusion created by steel wires stretched out and forming two large rectangles. The light green color of both the wires and the shadow that the artist painted on the wall reinforce the illusion of plates of glass suspended in the space.
