DESCRIPTION:  Bertoia’s spray sculptures are his most elegant sculpture creations. While they do not make any sound, they are meant to be “played” with and are carefully orchestrated to move in a hypnotic and graceful manner. Whether gathered in one’s hand and released or gently brushed with a hand, the rods move in concentric circles. There is a beauty and gentle quality to this movement that mimics elements in nature, such as wheat in fields and certain plant life underwater such as coral.
PROVENANCE:  Collection of Barbara and Victor Levin
Donated to Lenox Hill Hospital, 2004
