Sculpture: 'Νίκη II (victory) Crystalline Wall Mounted sculpture' by Toby Short
Crystalline Wall Mounted sculpture/statue/plaque for sale for Interior Decoration Inside a house or office and Indoors in a House by Toby Short whose Exciting and unusual sculptures defy mundane classification. He simply writes....
fractal mentality is the collective name for several sculptures showing a mass of multifaceted geometric planes produced by an intentionally none-mathematical and serendipitous process. I attempt to crossbreed a cloned version of computer-graphic solids (a potentially cold and unemotional medium) with something quite the opposite, very humane, arcane, and instinctive. The resulting effect is a surface of minutely subtle changes in the intensity of the light’s reflection creating something beautiful which is also somehow organic in the chaotic precision of its imprecision. As the economic necessity to perform the many basic functions of living with the aid of computers becomes more apparent, so the way that we interpret the world around us is obliged to conform to a common language. The application of systematic thinking is the highway that leads to the future, but the economical necessity of effective information-storage is dictating a series of progressively narrowing portals through which we receive the world and therefore we must sacrifice a magical and limitless potential in the name of progress. My art tries to recapture the ‘magic’ which is becoming marginalised by the language of science.

"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately,
to front only the essential facts of life
and see if I could not learn what it had to teach,
and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived." Thoreau
Hi Liliya, Rainbow 1 arrived today. I can`t describe my delight, it is so truly awesome, where did you ever find such a piece of wood, and you are so skilled, creating such a unique piece. I`m not worried about the crack, it`s natural, and part of its beauty. This will be a privilege to own, and will last for so many lifetimes. Kind regards,
Mr A. Chalmers, Suffolk, United Kingdom.
