 500 STAINLESS STEEL ELLIPSES SPRAY ENAMELED

500 STAINLESS STEEL ELLIPSES SPRAY ENAMELED

Traffic Zone Gallery presents Impromptu, an exhibition of sculpture and sculptural installation drawing inspiration from musical themes, by Jim Dryden. The exhibition is anchored by Anthem, a kinetic installation of 500 suspended, stainless steel ellipses that interact through form, the play of light and shadow, and movement in the gallery space.

Jim Dryden has been working with the ellipse for some time, using this simple, minimalist shape to express an endless range of ideas. At times, it might represent our world in microcosm: the path of an electron; blood cells jostling together; a deadly bacteria; a life-saving mold; a fragile egg. At other times, it might represent our world in macrocosm: the orbit of a moon or planet; the circumference of an entire galaxy.

 And always, the shape of a musical note.
