Duality - Palm Desert, CA
Standing thirteen feet tall, Duality was originally on view as part of the City of Palm Desert's El Paseo Invitational Exhibition. Following the exhibit, the city chose to purchase the artwork for their permanent collection. Utilizing two physically seperated halves, this sculpture's curved mirror polished surfaces are accentuated at their connection points with a rich and natural oxidation finish. These connections – a contrast in color and texture – are a suggestion to look beyond the surface of things. At the center of Duality is a deep ochre oxidized matte finish that is only alluded to on the outer surfaces.
