I’m really impressed with these sculptures. They look so effortless and light but the expression in each one shows the inbuilt power of the structure. The sculptures caused me to pause and investigate the labour involved and to consider how the artist works.
Rainer uses hollow metal squares to sculpt the human form and creates works that brings out both the strength and delicacy of the body. The negative space adds as much to the form as the metal parts.
When darkness falls and the lights come on there is a secondary level to the art. The silhouette cast on the walls creates a consequential sculpture of light and shadow.
