Though I purchased this piece several weeks ago, I'm just not able to share it. It's a wonderful small construction by Christopher Williams. I saw the piece in his recent solo show at Flashpoint, Legato. I haven't measured it but I believe it's about 10" x 10" x 3". The mark you see is a rasied form made out of plaster, I believe. Williams showed many of these small studies in his show. They were made as preparation for larger forms he imbedded directly into the gallery walls. For me, the quiet nature of these pieces stole the show. Simple, refined, elegant, beautiful craftsmanship... what's not to love?
The Flashpoint Web site states the following about Legato:
In Legato, sculptor Christopher Williams responds to the physical space of the gallery, exploring its limits as they relate to form. Williams manipulates the gallery’s existing boundaries by building temporary walls in front of the true walls and making use of the conduit and ductwork of the gallery’s ceiling to install forms based on observational figure drawings. Some of these forms are cast in fiber glass and Hydrocal, while some are painted directly on the wall. These temporary materials allow Williams to create the appearance of a large-scale architectural intervention while preserving all aspects of the actual space. At the same time, the figurative allusion of the artist’s abstract forms lends an additional layer of visual and physical negotiation of the space, suggesting relationships between the body and its surrounding structural environment.
