Henry Saxe

Pseudo-Sphere

1988
For Henry Saxe, drawing and sculpture are separate but related activities. In "Pseudo-Sphere", discrete geometric forms interpenetrate one another in a loose configuration that changes every time it is moved. His drawings are not mobile in the same way, but as the artist works within given ranges of line and colour, gesture and geometry, he suggests the mercurial nature of composition by slight variations and repositionings of elements from one drawing to the next.
