About Athabasca

A pillar of stainless steel is coated white in this minimalist outdoor sculpture by Philippe Pallafray. The sculpture is designed with jagged polished cracks in the steel that glint in the sunlight. The artist ascribed meaning to reflected light by quoting Leonard Cohen: “There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.” Titled Athabasca the work brings to mind a geological sample of ice. This work is available by commission requiring 10 to 12 weeks for delivery. It is number 2 in an edition of 9.
