Wall Sculpture in Bronze and Stainless, 'Achern' by Kue King, #586

$3,600

About

Aged bronze, stainless steel. Kue King created this abstract geometric sculpture using bronze and stainless steel wire. The bronze is aged to give the sculpture a warmth and depth in color and display. The polished stainless steel gives the sculpture a shine, reflectivity, and mirrored finish that adds sparkle to the room and picks up on colors that surround the piece. Metal reflections highlight the feathery radius and create gentle shadows that deepen and project the sculpture into the wall. The radiating central bundles create a kaleidoscopic shadow effect that changes with viewing angle and lighting. Brightly lit, drama and strength dominates through reflection and shadow. By lowering the lighting the same piece becomes soft and alluring. Kue uses an aesthetic reminiscent of trees, electricity, and light. Adults and children alike see snowflakes, stars, flowers, a metal branch, ocean creatures, a twinkling jewel. His work has been compared to the tied wire sculptures of Ruth Asawa and the wall mounted sculptures of Curtis Jere due to their style, shine, and placement similarities. Kue uses pliers to cut hundreds of wire strands and then ties them together using thin brass wire to form bundles. These bundles are woven together in a mirrored way to build the strength and structure of the piece. Moving outward in process, each reflection becomes unique yet similar. The radiating branches flow outward, intersecting and spreading until the sculpture is complete. Kue says, “I use wire to create an orchestrated chaos of natural curve and moving reflections. My materials are simple. I use pliers and rolls of gleaming wire, weaving the delicate strands together to form an intricate lacework in patterns that are at once delicate and strong. There’s a unique tension between the material itself being so industrial and transforming it into something quite evocative and natural. It’s almost like alchemy. I’m taking something raw and making it into something complex and beautiful.” Answers to common questions: - Each work can be hung horizontally or vertically. - You are working directly with the artist, not a gallery. - Search his entire collection on 1stdibs. Full commissions are possible but rare. - The material, size, and patina are customizable, but it takes time. - All sculptures are suitable for indoors or outdoors. - The work is lightweight for a metal sculpture, comparable in weight to a similar sized mirror and just as easy to hang.
