Sphere (magnet drawing)
About the Piece
This work composed of chicken wire hexagons and copper mesh is held together by hundreds of small magnets. Each magnet holds a component to the canvas surface. From a distance an image forms of a sphere-like subject, held together by the magnetism between magnet and metal. With these works, I explore the idea of where a drawing can happen. I envision the space between the magnet and the chicken-wire piece to be the place where the drawing happens.
I envision these as freestanding, allowing the viewer to walk around the work and see the magnetic elements inherent in the work.
