Obelisks I and II

Piotr Strelnik

Date : 1994

Medium : Mixed media

Size : 250 x 80 cm each

In this diptych the obelisks show the Strelnik's attraction for monumental sculpture. The two oblong forms face each other in perfect symmetry, one being the mirror of the other. They are like sketches in preparation for a sculpture, studies of form, material, and visualisation of lighting. The obelisks are supple and curved, which, according to the artist, are similar to two bodies bending towards each other, escaping their role as a mere object.
