Touch and Go

Dimensions: Dimensions: 96” wide, 84” high, 18” deep

Materials: African Mozambique wood

Date: Completed for show in 1992

Description: The union of two cabinets and a connecting sculpture carved out of Mozambique place this work squarely in the no-man’s land between functional furniture and non-functional art. The cabinet doors open to display interior drawers and shelves suitable for stereo or buffet use. The sinuous, dramatic form which connects them seems to balance on one toe, as if poised for flight. Hidden wall mounts complete the engineering of a massive piece of furniture which conveys lightness and delicacy.
