Wall Sculpture in Stainless Steel, 'Acamar' by Kue King #597

US$7,700

About

Polished stainless steel. 47"x47"x2.5" 'Acamar' is a starburst wall sculpture from the abstract collection of Kue King. Kue uses an aesthetic reminiscent of trees, electricity, and light to create sculptures of peace and beauty. Adults and children alike see snowflakes, stars, flowers, metal branches, ocean creatures, a twinkling jewel. His work has been compared to the tied wire sculptures of Ruth Asawa and the wall mounted sculptures of Curtis Jere due to their style, shine, and placement similarities. The polished stainless steel gives the sculpture a shine, reflectivity, and mirror finish that adds sparkle to the room and picks up on colors that surround the piece. Metal reflections highlight the chaotic feathery radius and create gentle shadows that deepen and project the sculpture into the wall. The radiating central bundles create a kaleidoscopic shadow effect that changes with viewing angle and lighting. Brightly lit, drama and strength dominates through reflection and shadow. By lowering the lighting the same piece becomes soft and alluring. Kue uses pliers to cut hundreds of wire strands and then ties them together using thin brass wire to form bundles. These bundles are woven together in a mirrored way to build the strength and structure of the piece. Moving outward in process, each reflection becomes unique yet similar. The radiating branches flow outward, intersecting and spreading until the sculpture is complete. Kue says, “I use wire to create a spiritual chaos of natural curve and moving reflections. My materials are simple. I use pliers and rolls of gleaming wire, weaving the delicate strands together to form an intricate lacework in patterns that are at once delicate and strong. There’s a unique tension between the material itself being so industrial and transforming it into something quite evocative and natural. It’s almost like alchemy. I’m taking something raw and making it into something complex and beautiful.” Answers to common questions: - Each work can be hung horizontally or vertically. - You are working directly with the artist, not a gallery. - His entire collection is on 1stdibs. Full commissions are possible but rare. - The material, size, and patina are customizable, but it takes time. - All sculptures are suitable for indoors or outdoors. - The work is lightweight for a metal sculpture, comparable in weight to a similar sized mirror and just as easy to hang.
