The sheet of acrylic is balanced on its edge with a chunk of charcoal on either side held in suspension by the force of the magnets embedded within them. Symbolic of strong desires and their potential negative effects.
Vasa Munich is a sculptural, optical, sensorial genius. LA based Munich has been making these gobsmacking pieces since the 60s when his practice began experimenting with three dimensional painting constructions. In the late 60s Munich began to incorporate clear acrylic into his optical artworks, allowing for the structural support of different planes of colour and colour relationships, meaning that when you move around the object the colour combinations are constantly in flux due to the transparent material they rely on. Amazing, beautiful, drool, yes.
