Sometimes the search for a title defeats me, and this is one such day. I tried a title based around the word ‘Surreal’, or one that hinted at a jigsaw gone wrong but nothing sounded right. Maybe the brain is still asleep. But this is an image of a superbly crafted sculpture that distorts reality in a remarkable way. Depending on where you stand that clash of reality and a distorted interpretation of it plays games with your mind’s eye.
Your first glance at this image will possibly initially puzzle you. It’s an image that really looks, and works, better when enlarged. So click the image and enjoy it for a few seconds. Take it all in.
This is Solo II by Naomi Press in Cavendish Square, London. I first published an image of it just over a year ago. Click here to see that earlier Post. I thought that its time span in Cavendish Square was limited so I was surprised but pleased to see it still there last month.
Made of polished stainless steel this is an object that delights at every footfall. The world around you is presented in a warped, disjointed, Picasso-like fashion. Snatches of this and that, at odd angles, seemingly unrelated.
If you are near to London then do see this sculpture – it will not disappoint.
