Name of Work: PNCH BNCH

Architectural concrete, green marble / 56.5”w x 16.5”d x 16”h

About the Work:
PNCH BNCH explores a simple question: how do you make the monolithic appear delicate? Its design calls attention to the relationship between the manmade — concrete — and natural — stone — with each suspended amongst the other. Hard lines and grids are bisected by softer forms and flowing lines, creating an uneasy balance in geometry. The material property of concrete is pushed to the brink. Will it fail? Or like all things manmade, will it learn to coexist, humble and vulnerable within nature?
