House of Fine Art brought Anthony James’ fascinatingly hypnotic sculpture to the Middle East for the first time.
As is the case with all of the British-American artist’s creations, the Icosahedron instigated discussions about divinity, infinity and cosmology.
Known for his monumental performative sculptures and installations, Anthony’s work gestures towards experimentation with light and space. Drawing from minimalism and conceptual art, the Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design graduate explores mechanization, materiality and process to deliver works that play on human perception.
His latest is as much a dynamic sculpture as it is a mathematical equation.
Inspired by Plato’s experiment in unity where he demonstrated perfect symmetry in three dimensions, the sculpture composed of repeating equilateral triangles that create a 20 sided cage of steel. Inside, a psychedelic core of glowing light is awe-striking and meditative all at once.
