  • About

    'The enveloping components of this piece, being cut at right angles, may be evocative of walls, suggestive of seclusion and shutting out. The comparative openness of the structure from one aspect should relieve the weightiness of the enclosing shapes. I aimed at an interplay between the heavy outside and the intersecting more intricate smaller components.'

    Erwin Fabian 1980
