Blue Obelisk, Miami
Blue Obelisk is a tower of stacked geometric prisms in vibrant blue with mirrored facets. Calling to mind both the sky-inspired ultramarine of Yves Klein and the deep blue of the Atlantic ocean, the sculpture is a dynamic combination of organic and built forms. The gem-like prisms are inspired by the sacred geometry of the natural world. Made from sleek metal and precisely engineered to form a snaking tower, they are expressive of the artist’s fascination with the relationships between the material and esoteric worlds. Specific facets are mirrored rather than blue— reflecting the sky, surroundings and viewer- encouraging engagement and emphasizing the relationship between internal and external reality, humans and environment.
