Description of Work

The stainless steel sculpture is inspired from pure forms; liquid water or mercury stopped in motion to reveal its shape as a drop of spill caught in the air. Though weighing three tons with no angles, or hard edges, the form flows visually and appears light and fluid.

This artwork was installed as part of the Vancouver International Sculpture Biennale 2009-2011, and subsequently purchased by David Chung, Dava Development, who has transferred ownership to the City of Richmond so that the work may remain permanently at the River Road location.
