The Kiss

2015

black granite
2mH x 3m Dia.

Series: X-figure

An X-figure created from four tonnes of specially quarried outsized black granite, this modern text message is multiplied (x) into a monumental love-mark.  The Kiss renders a kiss, a cross, a circle and a square. Its intersecting planes, reflective surfaces, and deep shadows entice people to explore and engage. Like an ancient stone circle, viewers are drawn into the folds of the sculpture, enchanted by the play of light, brilliant reflections, abstract composition, and maze-like form. In constant flux, The Kiss is warm and sparkling in the sun; liquid-like and reflective in the rain; and striking against the contrast of sand, snow and ice. Combining primordial organic material with pure geometric form, The Kiss offers a seductive narrative touching on ancient, earthly and human concerns.
