Ellipses signify a pause in literature, often to build tension or omit words. The punctuation offers its name to George Andric’s large-scale stainless steel sculpture. The complexity of the shape becomes increasingly apparent as viewers move around the piece, studying it from every angle. Found in the environment, the spiral form appears like a vortex to another land, fragmenting the vista and blurring the boundaries between materiality and viewer. Andric’s sculptures combine geometry and repetition within an abstract vocabulary. The work reflects a fascination with perception and the relationship between the artwork and the audience.
