Property from a Distinguished Private Collection, GCC
polished stainless steel
83 by 102 by 15cm.; 32¾ by 40⅛ by 5⅞in.
Executed in 2010, this work is number 1 from an edition of 3, plus 1 artist's proof.
This work is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by the artist.
This work is in good condition. There is a minor curved tip on the top right piece and a marker mark on the reverse of the centre right piece, possibly inherent of the artist's working process. There is evidence of previous restoration in several places (adhesive residue). There are various shallow scratches in several places on the artwork. There is one deeper scratch on a piece on the left hand side from the angle it was viewed. The reflective nature of the surface means that fingerprints and dust are very visible.
The catalogue illustration is very accurate; however, the overall work is shinier and more reflective in the original work.
