Metal Wall Sculpture
by Jillian Pate

Steel mounted on wood
50″H, 28″W, 3″D

Counterpoint is a musical concept of harmonious balance; two voices that are interdependent, while each maintaining an independent character. In this work a singular panel of steel is cut into a delicate pattern as a chasm that divides the panel. Physically linked, the two textures are interdependent, yet express independently.
