Multiple Choice


Italian Carrara marble, Indian black granite
90mmH x 500mm Dia. (ed.3, 1 A/P)

Series: X-Figure

Multiple Choice reflects and absorbs, an X-mark poised between questions and answers. The intersecting blades of hand-polished stone from two continents – white Italian marble and black Indian granite – draw on divergent geographies and traditions, and dissect art historical moments, carving space between the spiritual monochromes of Malevich and early abstractions of Mondrian.

Stationed at a colonial crossroad and locked to the Earth, the minimalist form expands into a multifaceted symbol relating to origins and identity. Like an X selecting or striking out options on a voting paper or a test, Multiple Choice asserts action while holding in play multiplicity and contesting dualisms, such as certainty and doubt. As a multiplication sign, the composite stone figure points in plural directions, a way-finder amplifying the power and privilege of choice.
