Eduardo Paolozzi

Two Forms on a Rod

About this artwork

Influenced by Alberto Giacometti and surrealist sculpture from the late 1920s and early 1930s, Paolozzi here experiments with shape and volume. Two similar forms pierced by the supporting rod, face each other. While alike in shape, they oppose each other in alignment and direction, leaving room for interpretations of a balanced dialogue as well as a potential conflict.
