A roughly teardrop-shaped sculpture of shiny cast aluminum. Within the basic organic shape are several curls and a shape that appears to be a woman or perhaps a fetus. The sculpture sits atop a tall wooden base composed of a stack of fat disc shapes.
About organic form in itself, this sculpture includes an abstracted figure who could be either a woman or a fetus in the womb. The elements make the piece a commentary on the organic, fertility, and nurture. The closed form with its internal voids reflects simultaneously on protection and vulnerability.
A black granite abstract sculpute. Two "legs" rise up toward one another to meet at a point, making a basic triangle shape. At the bottom of the "legs," two horizontal "feet" protrude away from the object's center and end in four-sided points.
Tony Smith's abstract sculpture resonates between the mathematical and the organic, the material and the spiritual. It also shows some of the architectural sense that came from his early career as an architect. Solid and powerful, the piece nevertheless exhibits a kind of movement and flux as viewers move around it.
