About the Work
When viewers consider metal sculpture, it is often with the idea that welding is an industrial process and is therefore obliged to produce industrial forms; Lapointe’s abstract and expressionist assemblage, however, explores the unpredictable principles of deconstruction, accident, and balance, demonstrating the inevitable outcome of order. A reference to See No Evil, Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil, the work speaks to the importance of revealing evils committed in secret.
