Rings of stainless steel, polished to a high sheen on the exterior and matte white on the interior, intersect at dynamic angles in this elegant sculpture by Philippe Pallafray. His work is designed to represent the duality of nature and the industrial world.
“What is removed from the sculptures, the voluntary emptiness, recalls the ephemeral and fragile nature of life.” Phillipe Pallafray
