Buddha Sculpture TRANSPOSE AND TRANSCEND

‘TRANSPOSE and TRANSCEND‘


‘TRANSPOSE‘ is a floating bronze-mesh Buddha figure, dimensions 175 x 110 x 100 cm, made from a single sheet of bronze mesh and transformed into an expressive, dynamic balance of power an dignity. Watch the video of the sculpture making.

‘TRANSCEND‘ is a magnificent wall curtain, comprised of 207 half-transparent brass Buddha elements, 378 x 252 cm, in tune with the brass elements and finishing detail that is a theme throughout at Buddha-Bar, Knightsbridge, London, fabulously conceived by architects Tibbats and Abel.

An intriguing harmony of naked skin and drape with a special emphasis on the transcendental nature of the Buddha: a powerful dynamic fusion of the sculpture and its shadow projected onto and into the frosted screen behind the artwork.
The projected shadow emerges through the glass screen. The composition created is encapsulated as a separate artwork in itself and is the first experience of the sculpture as you enter the Buddha-Bar.
The lighting is designed to create an abstract multi-layered shadow image and to be hypnotic, repetitive and obsessive – a quality currently to be experienced in contemporary chill-out music and club music worldwide.
